Costs associated with caring for their disabled nephew, included purchasing a handicap van, have caused financial hardship for this hard working Waterbury, CT family. CTCF's grant helped to reduce van debt and provide groceries to lighten their load. Thank you to our sponsors and volunteers who make grants like this possible.

Hanna Headed to Camp 2017It is with tears in my eyes that I am write to you. My family is grateful that Cherish The Children Foundation is able to help our exceptional daughter, Hannah by making it possible for out feisty three-year old to attend a three-week camp for children with hemiplegia. Hannah spent 138 days in the NNICU after being born premature--weighing just under a pound and a half--with a brain injury that affected her left arm and leg. Last summer, Hannah participated in the program as a part-time student. Her teachers and therapists were astonished by the great gains she made in the use of her left hand. We can't wait to see how this year's therapy helps Hannah as she continues to grow and thrive. -Thank you.
