Shadow Buddies Foundation Overview
The mission of the Shadow Buddies Foundation is to provide emotional support through education regarding illness, disability, or medical treatments. The foundation accomplishes this mainly through unique programs designed to enhance the lives of children and adults and increase compassion and understanding of differences. In pursuit of that mission, the foundation will continually raise funds, develop new programs, and build relationships between organizations with complimentary goals. It is the ulimate goal of the Shadow Buddies Foundation to continue to develop partnerships so that we may be able to provide Shadow Buddies to hospitals and organizations at no charge. The Buddies are given to sick children upon their diagnosis or treatment. Designed to be both a friend and a teaching tool, the Buddy can help increase compassion and understanding while spanning the gap between treatment and awareness.
