Children’s Fund

Kids Beating Cancer Children’s Fund provides a series of unique and critically needed services for hundreds of children annually, directed at removing some of the overwhelming burdens placed on families while their child is going through the prolonged and difficult cancer treatment process or receiving a stem cell transplant.

Kids Beating Cancer Children’s Fund focus for these special children and their families, is what every parent wants: their child to be healthy, to beat cancer, and for the family to survive the long journey to a cure.

The Children’s Fund vision that inspired years of tenacious, unwavering effort was culminated in the opening of the first KIDS BEATING CANCER PEDIATRIC TRANSPLANT CENTER, at AdventHealth for Children in Orlando in 2012, an 8-bed state-of-the-art facility.  Through Kids Beating Cancer Children’s Fund, children are able to receive access to life-saving treatments.

Children registered with Kids Beating Cancer through their “Bunky’s Pals” program at participating hospitals receive a variety of unique services. Through the “MY ROOM” program, when a child is admitted to the hospital to begin treatment or admitted for a bone marrow or stem cell transplant, they arrive to a fully decorated, personalized, fun themed hospital room selected by the child. This reduces many fears and stresses, bringing joy. “ALL THINGS BUNKY” program provides the children once a week with Bunky custom made cookies and cup cakes, Bunky coloring books, Bunky Puzzles, and they can even paint a Bunky art kit. The “FOOD FOR FAMILIES” programs keeps the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center Kitchen stocked full with meals, drinks, and snacks and also delivers a hot meal once a week to help the families remain strong and less overwhelmed with the fear of not being able to afford the most basic necessity during their child’s transplant, food.

The heart of the Kids Beating Cancer Children’s Fund is
SAVING CHILDREN’S LIVES.

FOOD FOR FAMILIES

“FOOD FOR FAMILIES” fills the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center kitchen with meals, drinks, and snacks for the families of a child receiving a transplant. Kids Beating Cancer provides food so parents don’t have to worry about having cash in order to eat. Parents can dine in their child’s room so they don’t have to leave their child alone in order to eat.  In addition, Kids Beating Cancer delivers a hot lunch from a local restaurant once a week, and special snacks and fresh home-made desserts.  The “FOOD FOR FAMILIES” program is not simply providing meals as an end in itself.  Removing the need to worry about where every meal is coming from provides stability and freedom from financial stress for these families going through this already tremendously stressful treatment. You or your Company can sponsor a weekly meal, snacks, or help fill the pantry. For more information contact angelica@kidsbeatingcancer.com or phone Angelica at 407-894-2888

MY ROOM

When a child needs a bone marrow or stem cell transplant the treatment will require them to be away from the familiarity and comforts of home for many weeks, even months, often causing children to become very homesick. Kids Beating Cancer’s “MY ROOM” program allows each child to put their distinct fingerprint on the place they will be calling home by allowing each child to pick the theme of their hospital room. From sheets and bedding, wall decorations, to toys and accents, the hospital room will be transformed to the “coolest bedroom look” filled with the bright colors of; Paw Patrol, Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, Princesses, Sports teams are just a few of the themes the children select. The children can then focus on the fun and calming of their theme, with corresponding toys and comforts softening the look of a very high tech, state of the art Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center hospital room.
