When a child has cancer, it is an extremely difficult situation. Many families struggle financially during this time because of medical bills, food and supplies during long hospital stays, and lost wages due to taking time off of work to care for the child.
Often, single parents are forced to quit their jobs in order to provide the care needed for these children. Because of this, some families are unable to provide the gifts at the holidays that these brave warriors deserve AND NEED to help fight this horrible disease, because they are struggling just to pay the bills.
The sole purpose of Anna's Wish is to help families provide their children with the holiday joy they deserve and to perhaps forget about the worries that cancer brings if even for a few short moments. These kids and their families suffer enough. The holidays should be filled with joy and hope, not worrying about finances.
How It Works : Families in need of support will be identified in the Rochester area (for now). With their permission, someone from Anna's Wish will contact them and obtain a Wish List of presents for children in the family. After the list is obtained, someone from Anna's Wish will purchase the presents for the family to give at the holiday. Anna loved to give and see other people happy. She was a selfless person who always puts others feelings in front of her own and this organization will preserve that quality she possessed.
100% of your donation will go towards gifts for these children, 100%. All administrative costs of this organization (PO Box Fee, Paper, Ink, Web Site Fees, etc) will be covered by the McKinney Family. Every penny you give goes toward gifts for a less fortunate family that is dealing with this horrible disease.
Anna's Wish, Inc is a Federal and New York State approved 501 (c)(3) charity. If you choose to donate, your donation will be tax-deductible. Thank you for contributing to this organization and honoring our wonderful and gracious daughter. We are hoping over time that this organization will grow and be able to provide additional outreach beyond the holiday season to these deserving families and most importantly, children.
