Our Mission

Our Mission Statement

Description of Picture.Crayons for Cancer’s mission is to be passionately committed to helping ease the financial burdens of families whose children are currently suffering from the devastating effects of cancer.  Our goal is to raise money by selling fun and cute-shaped crayons to replenish Family Funds and Treasure Chests at children’s hospitals nationwide while teaching children the value of helping others.  Our definition of a Family Fund is a fund dedicated to helping families pay for expenses that health insurance won’t cover, such as daily parking fees or much needed meals from the hospital cafeteria for worn-out parents.  Our definition of a Treasure Chest is a prize bin meant to serve as a small source of encouragement where young patients go to choose prizes after enduring tough chemotherapy/radiation sessions or blood tests.

We also hope that through our efforts we will help demonstrate God’s love by enveloping these children and families in love and tenderness at a very tough time in their lives.

Go, TJ!  Still making the world a brighter place!
