Friends of Kids with Cancer understands that getting a proper education is important for growth and success. Children in treatment for cancer miss significant amounts of school, leaving the student behind and are often faced with future learning disabilities. Our programs engage these minds and enhance their self-esteem through tutoring, educational assistance programs and scholarship incentives.
Friends of Kids with Cancer provides several different avenues for safely and effectively releasing the emotions and stress built-up in our patients, their siblings and families. Our programs instill confidence, while offering aid in therapy programs and support groups. Having different means of communication is important when using words is just not enough to help.
Friends of Kids with Cancer makes a bad day better. By providing a positive atmosphere, our programs keep smiles on the kids’ faces every day despite their illnesses. Our toys, gift-cards, event/game tickets and family outings are used to brighten-up a patient’s day. We leave the patient and their family with uplifting memories to hold on to.
