The BBF can help families with a critically ill child in several ways with:

  • Direct financial grants of up to $5,000 to help cover eligible monthly expenses such as: monthly mortgage/rent/car payments, phone & utility bills, any expenses related for care of the sick child including medical bills not covered by insurance, parking at medical facilities, etc.
  • An additional "quality of life" grant of up to $500/family aimed at improving family morale. The grant could reimburse funds for such things as a family outing, a gym membership, the purchase of an electronic device, etc.
