Families with children battling brain tumors encounter many obstacles. Financial issues can play a big role in the stress for these families. Fortunately, there are some wonderful organizations that can help. Whether you are looking for help finding complimentary housing while your child is being treated at a facility far from your home, assistance with flight costs to a treatment program, or just general financial assistance due to the burden of medical costs and lost income due to your child’s illness, there is hope.
Social Security Disability Help

With the number of applications for Social Security Disability on the rise, it is becoming increasingly difficult for people with disabilities to receive a favorable decision from the SSA regarding their disability claim. With denial rates for the initial application stage climbing to well over 60% in recent years, many applicants find themselves unsure of their options and unprepared to further pursue a claim for the benefits that they rightfully deserve. This organization, not in any way affiliated with or endorsed by the Social Security Administration, will provide a free, no obligation consultation about your claim. If caring for your child is causing you to struggle financially, you may be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. SSI is a federal program that assists families of children and adolescents with special needs or disabilities.
