Cancer Charity Expands To Help More Children Whose Parents Have Cancer

Press Release – SAN MARINO, CA. March 23, 2018 – Help with Hope, a non-profit charity created by two kids who wanted to make a difference and help children whose parents have cancer, has expanded to reach and support more children.

An estimated 2.85 million children in the US live with a parent that has been diagnosed with cancer. [1]

“Historically, most cancer charities have focused on supporting the actual cancer patient which is a wonderful endeavor. However, there are millions of children that quietly suffer as the family dedicates time and resources to confront this tragic situation. A cancer diagnosis can be draining on a family. We’re here to foster a dialogue that can address the psychosocial aspects of having a parent with cancer,” said Jenny Yessaian, Help with Hope Founder and Executive Director.
