Childhood Cancer: An Expensive Journey

   Fueling the Fight is a community outreach program that assists families with a child diagnosed with cancer. 

Did you know the average cost for a childhood cancer patient to stay at the hospital is about $40,000? It's even more for childhood cancer patients in Salina and western Kansas. Children diagnosed with cancer who live in these areas cannot be treated in Salina. A small percentage of childhood cancer patients can travel to Wichita to seek treatment, however a majority of these children and their families must travel to Kansas City to seek treatment. Some patients even travel outside of the state to receive care.
