"Financially, emotionally, mentally- FGP has become like family to us- there are no words adequate to express what this organization has meant to our family. "
"Thank you all so much for bringing us hope, and help, when we needed it most."
"FGP made life less stressful - I knew I could count on meals and someone to cut the grass, clean the house so we could focus on our children."
Our mission is to ease the burden of day to day life for families facing all phases of a pediatric cancer diagnosis.
If your family is a pediatric cancer family in Planning District 16 (Stafford, Spotsylvania, Caroline, King George Counties and Fredericksburg City), or the Northern Neck, allow FGP to help ease the burden of everyday life so that you can focus on your more important mission: caring for your child.
The FGP Difference
Unlike most pediatric cancer organizations, FGP’s focus is on the parents. Our philosophy is that by alleviating the day-to-day stress through emotional and financial support, we are providing these caregivers with more time and less stress allowing them to better support their families during these difficult times.

“She was a breath of fresh air. She took on this cancer with such a good spirit and she got tough fast. She was extremely well-read and investigative about what was going on but yet always looking for when she was going to get better and what life is going to be like after she gets through treatment and has cancer behind her.” Read More
“Oliver was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in December 2016 at the age of 4. He came down with pneumonia and a week later we were at Children’s Hospital of Richmond learning the ropes of lumbar punctures and neutrophil counts. To be honest, most of that is a blur.” Read More
