The Frances Pope Memorial Foundation meets the emotional and financially needs of a family who is caring for a child with cancer or a catastrophic illness. The child must be receiving treatment in any hospitals within the New York Metropolitan Area.
How to apply for assistance
We strive to make the application process as quick and hassle free as possible, with little paper work so that you can focus on caring for your child. Our request form must be filled out by your child's Social Worker or Physician. Ask your Social Worker to contact us our Family Advocate, Serena, for a copy of our form at
Consider sharing with us
We may request a photo of your child or testimonial from our families to share with our Circle of Friends, for use in our Newsletters (Spring and Thanksgiving) or for our social media platforms. Participation is welcomed but not necessary.
