River Pork Pilots
Pediatric Brain Cancer is the leading terminal cancer in children. But why? The Crescent River Port Pilots are teaming up with Hogs for the Cause to raise money to hopefully end this devastating disease. Every child deserves to have a chance at being a kid and no child should ever have to hear the words, you have brain cancer. Your donation will go directly to Hogs for the Cause and help with Hogs House, which is a home at New Orleans Children's Hospital that families can stay while their child bravely fights to beat cancer. No child should have to fight alone, and Hogs House helps them fight with their families alongside through the tough times.
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.
