Funding will be part of the Brent’s Place capital campaign to build an additional building for families in need of housing and services during cancer treatment.

Fund supports patients being treated within our Children’s Center for Cancer and Blood Diseases (CCCBD) and their families. As we discussed on the tour, we have several social workers assigned to CCCBD patients based on their diagnosis (brain tumors, sarcoma, leukemia, etc.). These social workers work closely with families, and when they determine a family is need of financial assistance, they make a recommendation to the person who manages the fund. He then confirms that the request meets the criteria and will put in a check request to be made payable to the family. This is typically used for prescriptions, parking/transportation and meals. It may also help cover rent or burial costs.Child Life Program
The Child Life program at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) is an example of the hospital’s family-centered care in which Child Life staff work in partnership with physicians, nurses, social workers, and other members of the patient care team to meet the developmental, social and emotional needs of patients, their siblings and family. Child Life staff helps patients cope with the stress and uncertainty of illness, injury and hospitalization when they need it most.
