Mary Kay is a superstar of a mom who has helped her daughter Katie fight cancer for over a decade. Her courageous in-depth story is shared with the Gold Rush Cure RUSH Podcast audience for the first time.
Gold Rush Cure is all-volunteer-run. A GRCF Location means we commit to the local pediatric cancer units in that region through our Pot of Gold program and have an infrastructure of volunteer support and logistics.
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:
Ask the Pot of Gold parent/guardian about venue, comfort level and current restrictions that might exist for the patient.
Always apply hand sanitizer before and after delivery.
When asked by the family, wear a GRCF provided one-time use medical or new cloth mask during the entire duration of the delivery regardless of vaccination status.
Be symptom-free, feeling well.
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.
