TEEJA'S FUND helps offset the mounting expenses related to Teeja's ongoing treatment for neuroblastoma, an aggressive pediatric cancer.

It’s great to see Teeja and her family smiling after so many months of stress related to Teeja’s treatment, but what you don’t see is everything that led up to this snapshot in time. The difficult journey for Teeja and her family is similar to what most families experience; a tortuous struggle through painful hours of treatment, the heartache of watching a child endure so much, wondering if it will all be worthwhile and at the same time, trying to deal with the unrelenting financial stress of high out-of-pocket expenses for meds, travel, co-pays and living expense away from home.

In the world of pediatric cancer, smiles can fade in an instant. Just when Dennis and Tana were so hopeful that their little girl, Teeja, was responding well to treatment, they received the heartbreaking news that more aggressive treatment is needed to battle a recurring neuroblastoma.

What Can You Do to Help? Give Generously!

Allison Wilkins, Teeja’s music teacher and director of Allisongs for Tots, and Colleen McGrath, director of Music & Me are teaming up to hold three children’s music concerts to help relieve the financial burden Tana and Dennis are experiencing. These benefit concerts of the internationally acclaimed Music Together Program features Gerry Dignam, known by children throughout the world as "Uncle Gerry" who sings on various CD collections. Your voluntary donation of $25 in support of the event is most appreciated.

Costs associated with your donation will be underwritten by Kickin’ for Kids so that 100% of your donation goes to Teeja’s Fund.

Please visit the Uncle Gerry Concerts for Teeja Facebook page for dates and times of the event.

100% of Your Donation Goes to Teeja's Fund
