We’re all about pivoting at D5F and COVID-19 has been our biggest pivot yet. Over the course of the last 6 months we’ve continually modified our programming so that it can address all of the needs for the families we serve. During that time, our welcome gifts have evolved for each family and continue to get better because of your generous support. Our latest one included; numerous items to take to treatment; Nintendo switch lites for the kids while they stay overnight with family and friends during treatment; an Apple Watch for Mom to track her health; a nice cooler for Dad to quickly stuff the gifted lasagnas and casseroles into while he’s running errands around the neighborhood (this happens a lot). We’re anxious and excited to get back to our old programming, but until then, we’ll keep pivoting so we can continue to provide the best experiences and care possible. ...

This past weekend, D5F helped give a little girl an exceptional birthday party. The night prior, STL Yard Cards setup a pleasant surprise for her to wake up to then the family was treated to a catered meal from P'sghetti's Pasta & Sandwiches. Our friends from SAMMY J Balloon Creations - St Louis Balloons then put together an amazing Rapunzel themed balloon sculpture, followed by a magic show from Abra-Kid-Abra. The day was then capped off by the Cool Times Ice Cream Truck, and the family could order all the sweet treats they could imagine.

Prior to this amazing day, the family has been receiving weekly laundry, lawn care, and meal prep services, all in part because of your generous support.

From all of us at D5F, thank you for helping us make their day. #december5thfund #community

A tough work schedule while also caring for a loved one with cancer can prove to be a challenge. Mom, Dad and kiddo are getting some much needed time together with 20 of their closest friends and family at Sunny Street Cafe in Wentzville, MO. After they fuel up, they’ll be treated to an amazing outing for 40+ friends and family. #bethegood #community ...
