Journey4ACure recently launched iPads4Cancer, a new program dedicated to changing lives by delivering the gift of an iPad to children battling cancer. Since the launch of our program, we have received many applications from deserving children who wish to receive an iPad. In an effort to be able to accommodate these initial requests, we are hosting a raffle to give away a free iPad2 to one of you (our supporters) to raise money to purchase iPads for the program.

iPads4Cancer is a program created to change lives by delivering the gift of an iPad or iPod Touch to children battling cancer. Children who are battling cancer spend most, if not all, of their time in the hospital being treated. They are isolated from friends and family and are often forced to miss a significant amount of school. The goal of the iPads4Cancer program is to offer a tool that will allow children to communicate with friends and family outside of the hospital, to utilize built-in apps to stimulate their learning and keep them on grade level, and, most importantly, have FUN! Each iPad will be delivered equipped with a variety of age and/or grade appropriate apps that are selected based on each child's individual needs, likes and personality.
It is our hope that the simple gift of an iPad will provide some happiness to a child who has had their childhood experience compromised by the devastation that is cancer.
