2014 has been a busy year of smiles, tears, and celebrations for our families. IROH has been able to assist with purchasing medical equipment allowing children to leave the hospitals to recover at home with their families. Funds have been used to support families for funeral expenses, housing for a family who was displaced due to a house fire and even to help fulfill small wishes for the children. We have paid rent and utility bills, provided food and transportation expenses, adopted families for Christmas, and delivered Kiddie Comfort Bags and school supply sack packs to patients and their siblings. All of the programs we offer for the ENTIRE family are in place to ease the already heavily burdened minds of parents trying to care for their children while in treatment.
Isaac's Rays of Hope has been able to carry out its mission based solely on the donations of generous donors, sponsors, and fundraisers like yourselves. We are proud to say we are a 100% volunteer organization. Please support Isaac's Rays of Hope's mission to create brighter days for kids with cancer by joining our Go!
