In June of 2016 the Board of Community Against Cancer (CAC) approved the creation of the “Let Them be Little” Fund.  The purpose of this new fund is to provide special gifts or activities to children of cancer patients, who are silently impacted when a parent/caregiver is diagnosed with cancer.  These children are sometimes forced to grow up too fast.

The CAC believes that if a parent/caregiver can see their child happy and smiling, it will improve the patient’s mental and emotional state. Nomination forms to receive funds can be found at www.communityagainstcancer.org and should be returned to Beloit Health System Cancer Center, 1670 Lee Ln, Beloit, WI 53511.  The Board of Community Against Cancer will meet quarterly to review the nomination forms and all distributions will be made through Beloit Health System Foundation.
