Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How many kids get diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. each year?

Each day in the U.S., approximately 43 children are diagnosed with cancer. That’s nearly 16,000 kids each year. Cancer does not discriminate; it affects kids from all backgrounds, ethnicities and socio-economic groups. That’s why Roc Solid’s vision is to one day build hope for 16,000 kids and families every year.

Q: I know a child with cancer. Can you do build a playset for him/her?


Our Play It Forward playset program is available in Virginia (Hampton Roads & Richmond areas) and North Carolina (Charlotte, Raleigh Durham & Winston-Salem areas). Families in those areas can get more information from their child life specialists or social workers at their children’s hospitals.

Our Roc Solid On Demand program provides playsets to families fighting pediatric cancer everywhere else. Click here for more information.

If you have further questions, you can contact us any time.

Q: How can I sign up to volunteer?

We are always looking for extra hands at community events, our major fundraising events, playset projects and (currently in Hampton Roads, VA only) Ready Bag Packing Parties.

Q: Do you take donations of medical equipment or other items for kids and families in need?
We get this question a lot. And we are happy to ask around, but we will often refer you to another local organization that provides these types of resources to children and families. Let us know if we can point you in the right direction.
Q: I’d like to plan a fundraiser for Roc Solid. Where do I start?

First of all, that’s awesome! If you have something in mind, please send an email to info@rocsolidfoundation.org and we will put you in touch with the person who handles community events in your area.

Q: What percentage of donations goes to your programs?

Impacting 16,000 kids and families a year is a big goal, but one we are determined to reach. So we strive to utilize every dollar possible toward growing and implementing our programs. We plan with the 80/20 rule in mind, meaning around 80% of all donations go straight toward our mission.
