Locally at CHKD
Helping families admitted to Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters (CHKD) who demonstrate a severe hardship. After CHKD social workers conduct an assessment to determine family needs, the fund is utilized as a short-term resource to help families with expenses related to transportation (including gas, tolls, cab fare), meals, medications, baby formula, household utilities and more.

Cancer doesn’t care where you live. That’s why we’ve grown internationally to help families of children battling rare childhood cancer in Marc’s hometown of Warrnambool, Australia. Each child battling these deadly diseases deserves the best care, but we know that comes with a cost. Our LEISHLine works directly with the Leila Rose Foundation team to distribute grants to help offset essential living costs for eligible families.
We are committed to deliver packages of “Audrey-approved” kits called Period Planners to Virginia Beach homeless shelters along with educational materials to protect women against Toxic Shock Syndrome.
