Lucy's Love Bus delivers comfort to children with cancer by paying for any therapy that helps to balance traditional cancer care and improves the quality of life for a child. We offer funding awards in increments of $500 for anyone who was diagnosed with cancer before the age of 21 years, either currently undergoing treatment or suffering from the late effects of cancer treatment. We connect families to local integrative therapists and pay practitioners directly for their services. Please click here for our FAQs about our program.
We are currently accepting applications for children in the New England area. Starting January 1, 2016, we will have limited funding available each month for children outside of New England who have relapsed or transitioned to hospice.
Many cancer treatments are still under experimentation, and many of their side effects can be debilitating. The therapies we provide funds for- such as acupuncture, massage, therapeutic horseback riding, nutritional counseling, Reiki, meditation, tai chi, art, music and dance therapies- offer children the opportunity to heal their spirits along with their bodies.
Lucy's Love Bus offers children and their families the love, understanding, and comfort that they need while going through cancer treatment and beyond.
“When you look at the sick children follow them to the place they can speak to you in. Notice their bodies are two things, love and illness, and help them remember the love and not the sickness. The Healing is [in] knowing who you were, not what you might be.”
