The Tomorrow Fund was founded in 1985 to ease the traumatic financial and emotional stress of childhood cancer. The founders- a group that included medical personnel and parents of children with cancer- recognized that, in addition to the very best medical care, children with cancer and their families need financial and emotional assistance to cope with the overwhelming challenges of this insidious disease.
At the time of the founding, children with cancer at Rhode Island Hospital shared space with adult oncology patients. The dream of having a local oncology clinic dedicated solely to the treatment became a reality with the opening of The Tomorrow Fund Clinic at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in 1995. The Clinic is widely recognized for it’s outstanding medical treatment and its compassionate approach to children and their families.
The Tomorrow Fund provides daily financial and emotional support to the children with cancer and their families. Kids treated in the Pediatric Oncology Program and The Tomorrow Fund Clinic at Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, Rhode Island, receive support from The Tomorrow Fund.
These vital programs are made available to the patients and families from the time of diagnosis, throughout treatment, into recovery and beyond.
