Maggie's Wigs 4 Kids of Michigan does not receive funding from any of the following resources. Their programs are available to the public and we appreciate them for the work they do for the children of our community.
Alex's Arcade is here to help kids cope with cancer, whether it's donating gaming systems to Children's Hospital, fundraising for our cause, advocating for childhood cancer awareness, or fulfill a dream for a family fighting cancer. The feeling of helping others, making a difference in the lives of children, or being the reason that child or family can cope with cancer a little easier...Is like no other.
