Review for Trevor S Treasures, Woodbridge, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I cannot say enough good things about the work that Trevor's Treasures does for kids battling cancer. Trevor Blake is an inspirational boy who is a hero to the kids at the hospitals he visits. He openly talks about the difficulties of cancer and how very matter of factly he and all kids will beat it. He is so mature and truly loves bringing hope and smiles to the other kids battling this horrible disease through the gifts and "treasure boxes" that are a staple to the organization. The treasure boxes that rest on the nurses stations on the oncology floor motivate the kids to get out of bed and do laps for prizes from the box. His visits always bring smiles to the children, staff and parents/families, and the charity often provides food over holidays such as Thanksgiving Dinners. Trevors Treasures is a wonderful charity and organization and is one that I will always support and will encourage others to do so as well. Thank you Trevor and the Blake Family!

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

Fairfax Inova Childrens Hospital - After my 5 year old sons surgery to remove his kidney, he was very weak and in a lot of pain. One day, we opened the door of his room and there was the green Trevors Treasures box sitting on the nurses station. When my son asked what it was and learned all he had to do was 1 lap and he could get a prize, he immediately wanted to get out of bed. While it took him awhile to complete 1 lap - he did it and was so excited to get to pick his prize.

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