This very special group of people have a goal of supporting the children and families that have been touched by Cancer. This goal is both narrow in focus and broad in scope because each and every situation is so different! Every day they are looking for ways that will best help those individual children and their families. It includes the special Wii stations that have been built up and provided to various hospitals in various configurations to meet the room requirements. Or it may be providing resources to find and understand the long process that is being embarked upon and what is available to meet those needs. This could be help with the reams of paperwork & forms that have to be filled out, providing "overnight" bags, different gift cards for coffee or food to take you a little bit further without having to leave your childs side or gas to get back and forth. While the hospital takes care of the sick child, no one (except the parent(s) or family) take care of the other siblings and what they need for day to day activities. This incredible group of selfless, tireless, hardworking people only want to want to make the child's and families time the best it can be under those circumstances while the scientific community finds a way to eradicate Cancer from the face of the planet!
