Welcome to Hogs for the Cause, a charity dedicated to providing for families with a child with brain cancer's non-medical needs. We need your help!

Not only does cancer take an enormous toll on the mental and physical health of the patients and its family members – it also has a tremendous financial impact. The costs associated with childhood cancer make it a struggle for families to get by and meet their needs while also being able to get their child to lifesaving treatment. For families already living in poverty, these difficulties are often multiplied.
