Teardrops to Rainbows Overview
The mission of Teardrops to Rainbows is to improve the quality of life of children with cancer and their families by providing support, services and financial assistance. We are specifically focused on helping the families stay connected and better manage their day-to-day household responsibilities so that they can improve the quality of their family lives. It is our vision that these families be able to:Â· Spend more quality time together, including time for parent-to-parent and parent-to-sibling interactions, as well as time with the cancer patient;B· Better focus their time and energy on the treatment of the cancer patient; andC· Stay better connected with their immediate and extended family when they are not able to actually be together.D. Between 2005 and 2008 Teardrops to Rainbows has made a significant investment in the hospital and outpatient living environment of our families. We have created a beautiful parent lounge/respite, several child treatment rooms to preserve the "safe-haven" of the childs private room, and we created removable wall murals in the outpatient clinic and in at CNMC. We will continue this effort through 2009 and beyond. This year we installed flat screen TVs in every patient room at Inova Fairfax Hospital as well as a private Wii system for each bed. We provided games, Rock Band, Wii Fit etc. for the patients to use while in the hospital. We also donated several Wii's and a Wii Fit to the outpatient clinic which serves children from Inova as well as CNMC.
