The National Children’s Cancer Society Public Service Announcement

The NCCS believes when a family is facing the tragedy of childhood cancer, all they should focus on is getting their child well again – period. They shouldn’t have to be overwhelmed with the travel costs surrounding treatment. But how many of us have a savings plan in place for childhood cancer? And unlike other organizations, the NCCS has no limits on how many times we will assist a family in need.

Public service announcements are now available for download that:

  • Raises awareness of the immediate financial impact of childhood cancer
  • Communicates how the NCCS gets children battling cancer to lifesaving treatment no matter what it is located
  • Explains the non-medical expenses families battling childhood cancer face that insurance doesn’t cover such as airfare, gas, taxis, lodging and meals
  • Promotes how the NCCS stands by families to get them where they need to be – physically, financially and emotionally – to give them hope, and to give their children the best possible shot at survival.

Please run these PSAs on your station! We need the support of stations like yours to ensure children battling cancer get the treatment they need to survive. For more information and to view these PSAs, read the full article here.
