Kids should always have the opportunity to make friends and not feel different. We offer so many activities, support groups and programs along with vacation condos and tutoring. All of these wonderful programs are free to our families.
With your support we can offer our Cool Kids and their families a bit of joy while they are going through their treatment and journey back to health. After treatment has ended, our families remain with our organization. We know that our kids and their families still need our help, and their struggles don’t end once treatment has ended. Tutoring, support groups, camp and our vacation condos are only part of what we offer our families. The confidence gained from tutoring and the joy evident in their bright smiles during our camp or clubhouse activities is priceless. Please help us to maintain these wonderful programs for our families as they deserve the best.
