BECAUSE NO FAMILY SHOULD GO THROUGHCHILDHOOD CANCER ALONE TMFamilies are referred to NCCS by pediatric oncology nurses and social workers attreatment centers across the country. The organization received referrals from 194treatment centers this fiscal year and provided financial assistance to 2,174 familiesbattling childhood cancer.Whether a child has just been diagnosed, is currently in treatment or completedtreatment years ago, the NCCS is here to help.HOW WE HELP DURING TREATMENTTransportationAssistance FundEmergencyAssistance FundThe NCCS offers two programs to ease the financial strain ofa childhood cancer diagnosis. Our Transportation AssistanceFund alleviates some of the travel expenses incurred to get achild to treatment such as mileage, airfare and lodging whenthe best place for treatment is away from home.The Emergency Assistance Fund provides an annual stipend tofamilies who have a child that has been inpatient or away fromhome for (15) consecutive days within the past three months.Assistance may be used for many daily expenses familiesface including mortgage payments, rent, utility bills and othertreatment-related costs such as prescriptions and parking.In addition to the financial impact of childhood cancer, theemotional toll it takes on a family is profound. Our FamilySupport Program helps ease the emotional strain by providinga case manager who stands by a family's side throughouttheir journey. These dedicated individuals are trained to offerpractical and emotional support during difficult times, educateparents and caregivers on how to best advocate for their childand provide referrals when needed.3

BEYOND THE CUREBeyond the Cure is the NCCS survivorship program which prepares survivors and their familiesfor life after cancer.The majority of childhood cancer survivors experience one or more “late effects,” which are posttreatment physical and cognitive issues that are a result of a child's diagnosis and treatment.Our Late Effects After Treatment Tool (LEATT), developed in collaboration with Robert Hayashi,MD, Professor of Pediatrics, Director, Late Effects Clinic, St. Louis Children’s Hospital/WashingtonUniversity School of Medicine, provides survivors with a personalized assessment of potential lateeffects based on their diagnosis and treatment.Beyond the Cure also awards college scholarships to childhood cancer survivors. More than 1.4million has been distributed to survivors to help them achieve their future goals. Applicants for theBeyond the Cure Ambassador Scholarship Program are asked to write an essay explaining howcancer has affected their lives and future as well as how they plan to give back to the childhoodcancer community. Fifty-eight college-bound childhood cancer survivors around the countryreceived scholarships totaling 203,000 during FY2019. The NCCS is deeply grateful to CenteneCorporation and the Engelhardt Family Foundation for their generous support of the program.SURVIVORSHIP CONFERENCESBeyond the Cure co-sponsored survivorship conferences with nine hospitals across the country.The conferences provide vital information on issues common to childhood cancer survivorship.This year’s conferences were presented with the following hospitals: Advocate Hope – Oak Lawn, IL Banner Children’s Hospital – Mesa, AZ Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta – Atlanta, GA Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughter – Norfolk, VA Fred Hutchinson – Seattle, WA Lutheran Children’s Hospital – Fort Wayne, IN Nationwide Children’s Hospital – Columbus, OH Rutgers Cancer Institute – Brunswick, NY University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital, Minneapolis, MNEDUCATIONAL PUBLICATIONSThe organization distributed 5,300 free educational publications during FY2019.

Management writes off receivableswhen it determines that an amount will not be collected and considers all receivables at September 30, 2019 to be collectible. Therefore, no allowance fordoubtful accounts is recorded at September 30, 2019. All receivables are considered current at September 30, 2019; therefore, no discount hasbeen recorded.InvestmentsIn accordance with accounting standards, investments in marketable securities with readily determinable fair values are reported at fair value in thestatement of financial position.
