The mission of Lucy’s Love Bus is to improve quality of life for children with cancer and life-threatening illness, to support their families, and to mobilize the next generation of cancer activists.
Lucy’s Emergency Fund
In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we surveyed our families and found that their most urgent needs are for direct support to cover basic necessities. This new fund enables us to provide Love Bus families with emergency funds for housing, utilities, (payments are made directly to the landlord/utility/lender) and gift cards to gas stations, grocery stores, and pharmacies.

We offer funding on an individual basis to children with cancer in New England for integrative therapies in their home, at the hospital, or on hospice.
