Programs: Sky High for Kids’ vision is to help end Childhood Cancer. Sky High is funding revolutionary research projects that will not only advance treatment worldwide but also move the survival rate needle forward. Between supporting the first immunotherapy center dedicated to pediatric oncology in the U.S., to funding sub-Saharan doctors and health providers to train in pediatric oncology specifically to combat the abysmal survival rates in that region, to helping fund the largest research facility for Pediatric Cancer research in the world, Sky High for Kids is vetting and supporting projects that will have the largest impact on Childhood Cancer. In addition, Sky High also has a number of programs that provide comfort to children undergoing cancer treatment. This includes the Adventures Program that takes families on an outdoor adventures, Tie for Sky High Program which provides blankets to patients, Patient Carnivals Program which serve as a little distraction from treatment and a moment for kids to be kids as well as the Ponytail Donations Program to provide hair donations and, ultimately, wigs for children. They also support comfort projects at various facilities that includes providing wish list items, electricity, a power outage solution, daily warm breakfast and more to families so they may focus on their child’s treatment.
