Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Youth Development

Mission: To overcome the social isolation and loneliness of children diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening diseases by connecting them with their friends at school through the use of the internet, computers, and webcameras.

Geographic areas served: connecting children with cancer to their schools

Programs: Hopecam provided children diagnosed with cancer and other life-threatening diseases with tablet computers, then worked with their schools and teachers to connect the children using skype helping bridge the lonely gap between homebound children and their classmates. 15,780 children will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Nearly every one of these chldren will have to be isolated from their friends and unable to attend school as a result of their treatment. Today, thanks to technology, this isolation can be overcome by giving the child a tablet computer and persuading schools to establish a connection with the hospitalized and homebound child. Hopecam is the only charity in the united states providing these services to children with cancer.
