Programs: The QFAD program consists of "tea" parties in pediatric cancer wards and/or cancer clinics. Each girl receives a make-over and a manicure. Parties can include favors such as hot pink feather boas, long white satin gloves, pearl necklaces, and tea cups filled with candy. Most importantly, each girl gets her very own tiara and a Polaroid picture to take home! Local chapters exist throughout the United States and are expanding to Canada and other parts of the world. Visit the web site for more information regarding specific cities and hospitals where QFAD is implemented.

Mission:
Queen for a Day is committed to creating emotionally therapeutic experiences for seriously ill children and providing them and their families with a joyful and much needed diversion from the strain of chronic treatment.

We use role models, make believe, and play therapy to give each child the opportunity to imagine and live out a fantasy while experiencing a moment of the childhood they all deserve.

We believe that by engaging and supporting these children with our ''for a day'' programs, we not only offer them a brief respite from the realities of their illness and everyday hospital routine but also a lasting and cherished memory to make any day a little brighter.

To see the sweet little faces transformed as they move through the event is life changing for all involved. The girls love getting all dolled up with make-up and nail polish, jewelry, boa, and a ... more »
