Friends provides snacks for the treatment centers in many different ways. One of the little conveniences we offer to the families is saving a little money on the vending machines with ice cream, crackers, candy and drinks available in the break rooms. This may seem like a trivial thing, but when the child is in the hospital for days and even weeks, they are rarely without a family member by their side. It is a simple gesture that goes a long way in making everyone comfortable, from the child all the way through to a grandparent.
