Francisco is an oncology patient at Children’s Health and was one of the first patients. With school starting up for Francisco’s brothers, his mother was concerned with the boys not having enough clothing to get them through the year, so us at The Extra Step went and brought the two brothers multiple outfits for the upcoming school year (they are big fans of Marvel characters so we made sure to spend extra time searching for character specific clothing). Lack of food in the house was also an immediate focus for the family so we brought the mother a gift card to her local grocery store so that there would be a sufficient amount of food for the weeks ahead. At the Extra Step we realize that life for the siblings and parents is stressful as well, so we look to help them out whenever we get the opportunity.
