Eric Cares is a program focused on providing support to assist families with funeral expenses following the loss of a child. After losing their own son Eric, parents Mike and Melody Jamali established Eric Cares, a program of There With Care, to help families celebrate and commemorate the beautiful life of their child.
Honoring Children Following a Loss
In the Denver Metro Area, more than 420 children lose their battle with a long-term illness every year. According to our research, more than one third of families who have lost a child approach a social worker or other organization for assistance with funeral resources or defraying costs.
Eric Cares Presents Matching Donations Up to $5,000
This year, we are planning to grow our assistance to local families in the Denver and Boulder metro areas by expanding our services to hospital NICUs (neonatal intensive care unit). Since Denver has some of the busiest and highest level neonatal intensive care units in the Rocky Mountain region, the need for Eric Cares services has increased and we need your help.
As a result of this increased need, we are launching a donation matching campaign. Through December 31, 2014, Mike and Melody will personally match all donations to the Eric Cares program (up to $5,000) in an effort to expand funeral assistance to more families who need it.
All monetary donations to Eric Cares are tax-deductible and used directly to help families defray the costs associated with their child’s funeral service so they can honor and celebrate the life of their child.
