June Jessee Memorial Foundation Fund at St. Louis Children’s Hospital
Caring for children like June is both incredibly rewarding and exhausting – a physically, emotionally and financially draining process that often impacts young, working class families just beginning to save for the future. High co-pays for a growing number of specialists, medical equipment, medications, frequent hospital stays – the costs can quickly overwhelm. To be at their best for a child, it’s also essential that parents and caregivers take time for themselves, but many times, insurance coverage falls short of in-home nursing care or overnight respite.
The June Jessee Fund was established to ease the financial hardship of out-of-pocket medical expenses on families who love and care for children with medically complex conditions.
