Can You Help?
Our hat’s off to all of our supporters this past year. You
have all made it possible for us to do our work in the north-
ern seven county area (Bergen, Essex, Sussex, Hudson,
Passaic, Morris and Warren counties). It has been a chal-
lenging year and there are many challenges still ahead.
We appreciate your year-end ﬁ nancial support. (Please
write a check before Dec. 31 to make your tax-deductible
contribution to our families.) We do need your direct help
in order to keep up with the current level of programs that
we offer. Underwriting the costs of electricity, telephones,
the rent and salaries may not be romantic, but they are real
expenses that we must meet each month. Help us to help
them. Your funds are meticulously well spent and most of
the money goes directly help the families.
Involve your group now and in the New Year. Enlist the
aid of your coworkers, team, or other organization members
in conducting a fundraiser or food collection to help get
us through the winter months. Keep in mind that whether
the times are hard or are good, many people dealing with
a child diagnosed with cancer have a tough go of it, espe-
cially those with a moderate income.
We thank you for helping this little girl who has big
problems in her daily living! Allie, age four, was diagnosed
with Wilm’s Tumor seven months ago. She had one kidney
removed and then months of chemotherapy treatment. The
treatment, unfortunately, left her with one kidney an overac-
tive bladder and leg muscle damage. She now suffers from
bladder spasms, discomfort, frequent urges, accidents, and
constant urination. She goes through multiple packages of
Pull-Ups every day, with night time being the worst. She
wakes up two to three times a night needing a change of
PJ’s and bedding. All of this is happening at the vulnerable
age of four years old!
Her mom, Sarah, is handling this as a single parent who
had to quit work as a teacher’s aide.
Allie has a string of doctor’s appointments, medical
tests, check-ups, and physical therapy. Basically, you could
say that she is under siege. The next hurdle is leg casting
to correct leg damage and prevent walking difﬁ culties.
The main cost this small family has is the high expense
for many packages of Pull-Ups. Any help with donations
is greatly appreciated. She wears a 4T or 5T Pull-Ups or

needs ﬁ nancial help, so we ask you to step up and write a
check to Emmanuel earmarked for our Family Financial
