CC4C children and families need your support more than ever
Updated: Aug 16, 2020
Dear Friends of CC4C,
Right now, many of us feel uncertainties related to health, jobs, school choices, access to needed supports, and connections to our closest family and friends. For our CC4C families, these worries are magnified in so many ways. Most of our CC4C kids cannot go back to school even if school allows in-person attendance, because they’re immunocompromised. Some children require expensive adaptive technology to learn from home that isn’t provided by their schools. Because they can’t go to school and childcare is impacted, many CC4C parents are facing tough decisions about their jobs – jobs that are linked to critical healthcare coverage for their medically fragile children. Our families also have to be careful about who enters their homes to minimize exposure. So even supports like home health or respite care are more challenging to access - and extended family and friends can do less to help with daily life. Even when it comes to the search for diagnoses and cures, things like testing, procedures, lab work, and clinical trials are delayed or halted.
CC4C children and families need your support more than ever. Team CC4C specializes in creativity and flexibility, so we’re finding fun new ways to offer uplifting experiences to children from a safe distance! We’re also committed to providing families with much-needed financial assistance to help cover out-of-pocket medical expenses. To help us do both, please mark your calendars for October 18th at 1 pm for Parade 2 Uplift – a car parade like you’ve never seen before! Join some of Texas’ most rare and exotic cars for a socially-distanced victory lap in celebration of CC4C kids. Start your engines and tell your friends – I look forward to seeing you there!
