Grocery Gift Cards for Pediatric Oncology Families

Daniella presenting $8030 in GIANT grocery gift cards to Lori, the Social Working for Oncology families

Our son, Christian, was diagnosed with t-cell lymphoma in February of 2009. During his 3-years of treatment, we met many families on the Johns Hopkins Oncology Unit. When your child is this sick, at least one parent stays with them at all times. This can lead to financial strain, as many 2-income families are reduced unexpectedly, to 1-income families. To boot, medical bills with high deductibles, add up.

Cancer is stressful. Figuring out how to feed your family should not be. We have run several fundraisers over the years to raise money for these families at the December holiday time. In order to not have 30% administrative fees taken out before the families see any help, I decided early on, to change the money into GIANT FOOD grocery gift cards and deliver them to the Pediatric Oncology social workers. They have a direct pulse on which families are in financial stress and give them out accordingly. I typically take $50 and $100 GIANT FOOD gift cards. (As a side, I chose Giant because they offer Peapod delivery. We met some families with teenagers at home & no transportation to get groceries.) The social work department at Johns Hopkins has really appreciated this form of help for our families and have shared countless positive stories with me.

If you are interested in donating a gift at anytime during the year, please contact me at 410-530-2367, or drop your gift to our office. I will turn your donation into a gift card at face value (or you can supply it directly yourself!), and hand-deliver your gift card, name and mailing address to our Social Work Dept at Johns Hopkins Pediatric Oncology. They will send you a thank you letter, which will also serve as your tax letter. I typically take a bagful of gift cards, wrapped in ribbon so they are ready to be given out, in early December, which is when Christian has his yearly follow-up checks. Today, he is as tall as Dr. Toomey, playing rugby and doing well in school! We are so very grateful.

Thanks So Much for Supporting Pediatric Cancer Families!!!!
Daniella Toomey
