Benjamin's Fund was established in February 2008, in memory of our son, Benjamin, who passed away after being with us for only 48 short days. While Benjamin was here many lives were touched by his story. Many lives were united with the common bond of wanting him to survive. Our lives consisted of caring for Benjamin and concentrating only on him. Fortunately, through the help of our family, friends and even strangers, we were able to focus more on Benjamin for the little time we had with him. We didn't have to worry about our loss of income or the stream of bills coming in. Thankfully, there was one less worry with all the help we received and for that we are eternally grateful.
Benjamin's Fund fulfills our desire to give to others the feeling of security that we had. Through our fundraising efforts we hope to provide assistance to families who are financially in need due to the burden of caring for a terminally ill child. We want a child, whose life will never be long enough, to be surrounded by their parents constantly. Even though financial assistance is only a part of the many worries a sick child can bring, it is our hope that we can help in some small way. Every family we help means that one more child will not be without their parents love and constant care; throughout their journey.
Benjamin's Fund is a 501(c)(3) recognized non-profit.
