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!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Helping to build the Wii stations for the different rooms where the children have to be (sometimes for many hours) and now have something interactive to help them get through the treatments.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Try streamline all of the ideas that come poring in. Many times there are so many more ideas for helping others, fund raising, getting the message out or building awareness that the small team tries to do it all at once.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Opening my eyes to a world that I didn't know about, and then being able to help in my small way to try and make it a little better for others.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Incredible, Amazing, Outstanding, Caring, Kind, Forward thinking, and really want to change this process

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Make a whole lot of children and their families have several less things to worry about. After all, dealing with Childhood Cancer is more than ANY one should EVER have to deal with...

Ways to make it better...

I had more time and $$ to offer to make things better for more people

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

How to handle getting the ideas into actionable projects

One thing I'd also say is that...

These guys are what good people do every day

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
