Taking a Stroll
Strolling for a better ‘Tomorrow’
JACK’S SUPERHEROES: Dressed as Superman, Jack Mayer, a cancer survivor, is surrounded by his friends at the Tomorrow Fund Stroll this past Sunday in Garden City. Pictured with Jack are Jake Dickstein, Kate Mayer, Hannah Dickstein, along with “Paws” from the Pawtucket Red Sox and “Jake” from 98.1 Cat Country.

This past Sunday, hundreds of family, friends and supporters of The Tomorrow Fund attended the Tomorrow Fund Stroll, now in its 10th year. From the time of diagnosis throughout the course of treatment, The Tomorrow Fund is there providing daily monetary stipends for in-patient families; hospital parking passes for the duration of treatment; financial aid for home expenses such as heat, utilities and rent; bone marrow transplant expenses and more. In addition to financial aid, they fund programs that help lift the burden of parenting a child with cancer, including coping, teen and bereavement support groups, parent consultants, community education and medical research.
