Adopt a Family

Adopt a Family
 Within the next few weeks, the P.U.N.T. Foundation will receive the holiday wish lists of several children in our community fighting cancer, along with that of their siblings and parents through the social workers at Roswell Park Cancer Institute & Buffalo's Women & Children's Hospital.

The financial burden of the holidays loom large for these families.

The average out-of-pocket cost for a family (with good health insurance) in the first year of pediatric cancer diagnosis is $20,000. This staggering cost is often coupled with a loss of income since a parent often suspends employment to be by their child’s side.

Many times, the gifts provided by the P.U.N.T. Foundation's Adopt-a-Family program are the gifts these children receive on Christmas morning from Santa. You can help us create Christmas magic for a local child in the fight for their life. You can give that child's parents the beautiful gift of seeing a smile on their son or daughter's face on Christmas morning.

Please consider getting your family, company, school or organization to "Adopt-a-Family" battling pediatric cancer this holiday season. You will also give a gift to yourself in knowing you have helped make a profound difference to a family when they have never needed it more.  We will work with you to determine the best way to get involved.  You can simply donate, do the shopping and wrapping for the families--or our team can do that for you.  Any budget amount will be matched up with item wish lists, and there is no obligation to fulfill every item for each family member.

To get involved, please contact our Program & Event Coordinator, Bridgett Moffett.  or (716) 866-9180
