ASK is a 501(c)(3) organization founded in 1975 by a small group of parents whose children had cancer. They came together to provide mutual support, search for answers, and deal with the devastating news no parent ever wants to hear: “Your child has cancer.” With 1-2 children diagnosed per week in Central VA, your donation will be a great help to our small, local nonprofit dedicated to making life better for children with cancer. Your support will help to provide emotional, social, financial and educational care to children with cancer who are treated at the Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU, the only treatment facility for childhood cancer in Central Virginia. ASK provides children, siblings, and caregivers with support from the moment of diagnosis through treatment to survivorship or bereavement.
