The Rainbow Projects mission is to have a much needed children’s cancer treatment center in the Fredericksburg area.
The Rainbow Project is based on the belief that our community needs a cancer treatment center for children. Before we can accomplish our goal to have a treatment center in our community we are reaching out to the families and children that have cancer to do whatever it takes to make their lives a little easier.The Rainbow Project was inspired by a special young lady named Scarlett Funk. For 14 years Scarlett and her family fought a battle that noone should ever have to face alone. Our organization was established in memory of Scarlett and all of the children who have endured such a devastating disease.
How many of you knew that there is no cancer treatment center in Fredericksburg for children? Most children in the area that have cancer have to travel 50 miles or more to receive treatment. Sometimes these treatments and appointments can be long, drawn out and not so close to home. The Rainbow Project is founded to help these children and their families with anything they need from meals, gas cards, grocery cards, running errands, providing things for siblings (games, coloring, puzzles, etc.) or anything else that could be of help. Cancer affects the entire family…not just the patient.
*All proceeds from this event go to The Rainbow Project and their efforts to help those families who are dealing with Cancer*
