The costs incurred while undergoing treatment for Neuroblastoma are considerable. Often, the dynamics of balancing treatment and work are impossible for at least one wage earner, and if there are other children in the family, sometimes both parents will find they can no longer work. The expense of travel, accommodation, entertaining siblings and keeping the family fed while while at your cancer centre can and does cost a small fortune. At home, the side effects of chemotherapy can mean lots of extra laundry, hot water, sometimes even a separate washing machine, special mattress or pushchair are needed. The heating will be on a lot more, you may decide to adopt a plan that removes cancer agents from your home or opt for a new diet. The list goes on.
There are lots of tips and advice throughout this website to save you money. In this section we will try to give you further advice and contacts for specialist grants and organisations that may be of help to you. Not everything is available to everyone. Some help is dependant on household earnings and some is dependant on postcode.
By now you will probably have already met your Clicsargent worker and already had their diagnosis grant. They may also have told you about the family fund. We will start with the details of these anyway.
