The Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer

The Tommy Fund was established to provide emotional, educational, medical and financial support to children with cancer and their families; and to improve the cure rate of childhood cancer through the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven and the Yale School of Medicine.


More Details

Since 1953, The Tommy Fund for Childhood Cancer, has supported local families whose children are undergoing cancer treatments at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven. The Tommy Fund provides direct payment for rent, mortgage and utility bills so parents can take time off from work to tend to their child. The clinic sees several hundred newly-diagnosed children each year and treats more children with cancer than any other hospital in Connecticut. In addition to direct family support, the Tommy Fund provides funding for new programs and initiatives aimed to improve the lives of children with pediatric cancer. Our goal is to continue providing support to these local families and help them during this difficult time.
