Thank You For Your Support!

We recently held out first ever virtual event, "Concert for Kids - Come Hell or High Water" with additional performances from Mary O'Dowd. The event was a smashing success, and with your continued contributions we were able to reach our goal of $50,000 to help support our families in need!

To all those who joined the concert and contributed to our fundraiser, we send our heartfelt thanks.

We could not do this without your help!  

If you were not able to attend the event, you can still help us support our families by visiting the Donate & Support page and selecting your contribution amount, or by contacting us directly. Be sure to keep an eye on this website for updates about future events and ways you can get join in on the fun!

Our Mission

Learning that your child has been diagnosed with cancer is unthinkable, yet it happens to families every day. The Frances Pope Memorial Foundation is a group of caring friends who have joined together to offer financial and emotional support to families so they can focus on what’s most important: their child’s recovery.

A cancer diagnosis effects the whole family; both emotionally and financially. We understand that additional costs associated with a diagnosis are not budgeted for and often are not covered by insurance. We strive to take care of expenses that are not covered by medical insurance.

We help families of children with pediatric cancer or a catastrophic illness, through social work referral, who are being treated in any hospital in the New York Metropolitan Area.
