The mission of Michael’s Way is to help the families of children with cancer to cope with the extraordinary expenses that come about as a direct result of the child’s illness. Chris McElwee, the founder of Michael’s Way, lost a brother to leukemia and was made aware of the unique problems that accompany cancer. When a child is diagnosed with cancer the intensive treatment regimen frequently requires a parent’s fulltime attention. In many cases, a parent finds it impossible to continue working while they care for their sick child. This loss of income combined with the increased costs associated with cancer treatment leads to severe financial problems for many families.
