With the cost of gas at $6/gallon in Ca, many families living far from their child's treatment hospital, can't afford the gas to get their child to treatment multiple times per month.
Megan's Wings believes no child should miss a life saving doctor's appointment because their family cannot afford gas to get them there.
Our Gas Assistance Program works with eight SoCal Children's Hospitals to provide gas cards to vulnerable families who are struggling to get their child to treatment. Our Gas Program's budget is expected to more than double, and we need your help to raise the extra funds so we don't have to turn families away.
Please consider making a one-time donation or become a monthly donor to help purchase gas cards for families in need. A $25 monthly donation helps buy (3) $100 gas cards. A $50 monthly donation helps buy (6) $100 gas cards, and ensures a child will not miss life-saving appointments.

For the last 3 years, our Gas Program has helped 100 families yearly with a $50 gas card for 4 months ($200 assistance per family). With high gas prices this year, we increased assistance to $100/month ($400 assistance per family). In the first quarter of 2022, we helped 56 families through our gas program. We are expecting over 200 applications this year. Please help us raise the extra $60,000 to meet this critical need!
Many families experience job disruptions and income loss after a child's cancer diagnosis. Income loss, inflation and high gas prices are creating financial hardship for many low to moderate income and single parent families who live paycheck to paycheck. This triple threat also affects a family's ability to pay other bills, forcing some families to choose between buying groceries or putting gas in the car.
Our Gas Assistance Program removes transportation barriers and makes difficult decisions go away for vulnerable families. We invite you to be a part of our solution and become a Megan's Wings monthly donor today. Working together, we are reaching more families struggling with the financial burdens of cancer.
