As many of you know, LOLLIPOP has been an important part of my life for over 10 years now. I've been so affected by the children and parents I've met along the way, who are the real warriors in this life. Some of you understand what they go through first hand, some are one step removed being a friend or family member and some I hope never get the opportunity to understand.
While LOLLIPOP does not provide the medical cure for these children (and oh how I wish it did) it does try to provide the emotional cure by bringing a magical momentary escape for these kids and their families. We do this in the form of movie screenings, music programs, animation events, and visits by celebrities - all to let each and every child we meet know we think they're special. I'm sure you can all remember a time when someone came into your life and made YOU feel special and what a wonderful feeling it was! Please help me help LOLLIPOP continue to make these very deserving children feel special by donating today. $1 or $1,000+ EVERY bit truly makes a difference.

WHY WE DO THIS
"It is always an exciting day when LOLLIPOP visits our hospital. LOLLIPOP's unique programming approach of bringing the arts to the hospital environment, allows patients and families to integrate a normalizing and positive experience into their treatment plan. Many patients often say "my other life is on hold when I'm in the hospital" or "I'm always missing out on things my friends get to do." LOLLIPOP breaks the barriors and allows the "hospital world" to be part of the whole. Many thanks for this wonderful program." --Rosy Evans (Child LIfe Specialist, Mount Sinai Kravis Children's Hospital in NYC)
