Programs

HCCF provides a wide range of services and programs to our families, including financial assistance, support groups, social events, education and advocacy. All HCCF services and programs are entirely free to our families.

Kokua Baskets
Given to newly diagnosed children and their families, these “survival kits” contain everything from gift cards to stuffed animals and blankets to help them have a better hospital stay.  The basket is accompanied by a book that tells parents about their child’s type of cancer and treatment in easy-to-understand language.

Financial Assistance
Our most widely used program is financial assistance, which helps families pay expenses not covered by insurance, including housing, utilities, and transportation. Click here for more information.

Book Reimbursement
This program provides childhood cancer survivors who are attending college or a vocational training program with funds for the purchase of books, supplies, or equipment.  For more information, please see the Book Reimbursement Letter, the Book Reimbursement Application and the Book Reimbursement Expense Form.

Frank Seleny College Scholarship
Awarded once a year, these scholarships help defray tuition costs for young adult survivors of childhood cancer.

Annual Workshops
Each year, HCCF brings nationally recognized speakers to Hawaii to discuss issues about childhood cancer and survivorship with our families.

Childhood Cancer Connection Group
“The CCC” meets every last Thursday of the month to reconnect and talk about events or issues that touch local families coping with childhood cancer.
