Imagine a hospital room. Dull, white sheets on the bed. Beeps and boops of the monitors on the IV pole. Cold, chilling temperature.
It’s a scary environment to think about, and yet, every minute in America, 11 children are admitted into the hospital and face this very experience.
Stripped from their everyday routine of friends, school, sports, and activities, they are scared of the unknown future that will come with an illness that puts them into a hospital room.
Right now, we face a reality that needs our urgent attention: many kids go into the hospital and are met with the scary room we just imagined. They begin their treatments on a fearful and defeating atmosphere.
They are in need of comfort. They are in need of warmth. They are in need of hope.
What if we could help?
A colorful, warm piece of hope brightening the room as it waits on the hospital bed for a warrior to walk in for the start of treatment.
The key to a child conquering the scary hospital environment is to provide them with something bright and comforting to combat the darkness. There is an inspiring power behind starting something off on a good note.
We can provide that kickstart to a successful battle, that motivation to endure long treatments, that hope that everything is going to be alright.
WE can make a blanket.
WE can make a video.
WE can make a difference.
