About ASK

With 1-2 childhood cancer diagnoses per week in Central Virginia, the numbers add up quickly for families that need emotional, financial and educational care as they navigate the complex and stressful issues of cancer treatment.

Your support will enable ASK to be there to provide something as big as financial assistance to pay their rent this month, or something as little as a snack, a toy, or a shoulder to cry on. All funds raised by the ASK Childhood Cancer Foundation stay right here in Central Virginia and directly impact the lives of children with cancer and their families.
