BENEFITING: CHILDRENS WISH FOUNDATION INTERNATIONAL INC
Going to the hospital can be traumatic for anyone, especially for a young child. Even simple medical procedures can be scary. To soften the impact and bring a smile to a child’s face, the “Just Because… “ program was created. This unique program provides children with a simple wish, such as a favorite toy, game, activity, stuffed animal, etc. These wishes are designed to help distract children from the fears and anxieties of treatments and help them find a sense of security and ease. Wish Foundation International is pleased to coordinate this program with, doctors, nurses, Child Life Specialists and Social Workers to offer to their patients. These small “Just Because…” wishes are available when a child will be receiving treatment or is facing other procedures and needs comfort.
