The COVID 19 restrictions have amplified the challenges for pediatric cancer patients. These children and their families often spend weeks to months in the hospital. Due to the new norms of distance learning and limited access to school resources, many of them rely on the computers provided by the hospital. Currently, at a hospital we serve, there is only 1 computer for over 20 rooms. This makes it impossible to meet basic educational needs. We need your help to correct this! Through this campaign, we would like to raise funds for 10 devices (laptops and iPads). 100% of your donation will go towards this cause.
UPDATE (08/02/2020): We are almost at 10K!! A huge THANK YOU for your generous donations and encouraging feedback. You spoke and we heard. We have increased our goal to make this wish come true for inpatients in all the rooms.
