Our mission for each year, is to raise enough money to present $10,000 each to three families who have sick children, a member battling breast cancer or someone who has suffered burns. Brian, a young boy, is our newest candidate recipient. He has suffered burns as a result of a household accident. We hope to raise the funds through this 5K running event to present to Brian and his family a check to aid in his recovery, and provide some positive things for him. We need all of you to make this happen. Help us, help Brian.
Scares That Care organization helped my family in so many ways. First, we are now part of an even bigger family that I am so grateful to know. They welcomed us with open arms. I really wanted to be able to show my daughter the world since she was diagnosed with a terminal illness called SMA. A friend contacted them and when Joe got in touch with me I felt a sense of relief from the very beginning. I thought to myself I don’t have this type of luck but you always have to stay positive even under certain circumstances. I knew in my heart that they were going to make our dreams a reality. If you’re wondering if they did well it was so much more than that and with their help I was able to take my whole family to Disney world. I wanted my children to have an amazing experience with their sister. Without the help from Scares that Care I could not have provided the funds to do so because I am a single mother of three beautiful children. I was able to get her stroller wheelchair with seatbelts so she can be transported safely with their help. If our power ever goes out I have the funds to get a generator so my daughters machines will never go without power. When she is in the hospital traveling to and from became less stressful because before I was worried about finances. When we travel to NY for her treatments I can pay for supplies needed for her BIPAP so she has sterile material for her machine because insurance doesn’t cover everything. I am forever grateful for their support. I know I am a part of an amazing family that through them I want to do more and give back in any way that I can. Thank you for all that you do!
With love from Team Mayse!
"The impact of Bertrand Castille being selected as one of the recipients of Scares That Care $10,00.00 gift is IT LIFTED HIS SPIRIT!
After being in a coma for 7 weeks, having numerous skin graft surgeries, being in constant pain and losing his independence, Bert felt he had no reason to smile. However after receiving such an amazing gift, it placed a smile on Bert's face that we had not seen in almost a year.
Additionally, with losing close to 30 pounds, Bert was able to purchase new clothes, necessities for his 2 children, and a car to get him to and from appointments. ( unfortunately he is still unable to drive at this time due to the inability to use his hands and arms).
Nevertheless words will never, ever be able to express our gratitude for your kindness towards Bert during this very difficult time."
"When you have a child with a rare disease, your world turns upside down. It's a type of culture shock, really. Suddenly, after we found out Jane was sick, we were learning new lingo and navigating a foreign and terrifying world.
Just when we thought we might be able to come up for air and reorient our family, the bills started rolling in. We also needed to get Jane to experts at Boston Children's Hospital to give her the best chance at a full life.
We were being crushed by this new life, and then the Scares that Care family reached out and took the weight for us; lifted it right off our shoulders. Because of the efforts of STC, we have been able to get Jane to Boston TWICE! We can afford the specialty medicine to boost her immune system. And best of all?
We can focus on making memories with Jane and filling her life with as much happiness as possible in the time we have with her."
Thanks and Love!
With the help of many of you, we have been able to present checks to all of our recipients families for 2017. Now we are hard at work to help our new recipients, and we are hoping that you will help us, help them.
