Dancing While Cancering is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with one sole mission: to bring joy to the inpatient hospital experience for children with cancer.
Our primary initiative is our "Smile Pack" program. Through this special commitment, every newly diagnosed patient at our partner hospitals receives a Smile Pack. These bright neon green backpacks contain various goodies to help transform and normalize the hospital room - items such as a wireless speaker, room decorations, and musical instruments.
Dancing While Cancering also sponsors "Maddie Projects" to benefit children battling cancer. Through our Maddie Projects, we are dedicated to being a funding source for all things joy on pediatric oncology floors. Examples include bedside craft kit creation, greeting card deliveries, and playroom improvements.
