Review for Kids & Art Foundation, Burlingame, CA, USA
Kids and Art is an amazing organization that focuses on the well-being and spirit of a child along with their care circle. It is refreshing to see an organization that recognizes the whole child and not just the disease. They realize that in order to successfully beat any illness, one needs to be mentally and emotionally strong and needs to include the care circle as well. Kids and Art give a sense of being normal to kids who are struggling for survival. Their workshops and unlike any others where kids work side by side with the artists doing some incredible projects from painting to glass work to fashion. The added plus is that the workshops are held in really cool places like Pixar, and Google to name a couple and are put on by people who really care and who want to be a positive force in a child's life.
The UCSF and Lucile Packard waiting room workshops are god-sent for parents. There is not better way to relieve anxiety and the stress of an oncology appointment than by having a creative outlet.
I have seen the positive impact Kids and Art makes in peoples lives and I only wish for our medical establishments to adopt such integrated care of well-being in all of health care.
