How We Support Patients

Pot of Gold Program

The pot of gold is a personalized gift delivery for children fighting cancer & their siblings

Fighting cancer is not easy.  It’s not easy on the family either.  A child or teen fighting cancer will endure hundreds of appointments and treatments.  They often undergo surgeries, transplants, chemo, radiation and more.  

They face frequent scans, anxiety, stress and worry.  During long stays in the hospital they often need support.  

The Pot of Gold program is a personalized and individually-shopped gift delivery by our team team of volunteers as a message of hope and encouragement.  It is also a time for the family to make a positive memory during their journey.

how it works

for hospitals & clinics

Gold Rush Cure Foundation and the Pot of Gold program has worked with over 100 children’s hospitals and clinics and is growing.  It is our #1 goal to give social workers and child life specialists another tool for supporting their patients.

We prefer to partner with you to reach the right patients at the right time.

Within our locations we provide a long-term commitment for your patients.

Once you submit the form to us - we take over!

how it works

eligibility

Children and teens (ages birth to 20) with a childhood cancer diagnosis are eligible for a Pot of Gold delivery experience.  A Pot of Gold is a one-time gift.

If you are within one of our location areas then we most likely offer the Pot of Gold through your hospital or treatment center.  If you are outside of our locations, our network of volunteers will do our best to make the Pot of Gold delivery happen.  Requests must be submitted through your hosptial social worker or child life specialist.

covid-19 notice

We are mindful of our young heroes fighting cancer, many of whom are immunocompromised and going through difficult treatment. In early 2022, Gold Rush Cure announced that the ubiquitous COVID-19 restrictions would be lifted. However, volunteers working with the Pot of Gold program are asked to:

GRCF always relies on the parents to make the ultimate decision on delivery location and preferences. Volunteers for GRCF will reach out prior to discuss deliveries and allow the parent(s)/guardians to make the best decision for their family.

No GRCF events are currently impacted by COVID-19 and will proceed as scheduled.
