Children’s Fund

Kids Beating Cancer Children’s Fund provides a series of unique and critically needed services directed at removing some of the overwhelming burdens placed on families going through the prolonged and difficult treatment process of a bone marrow or 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 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 arrive in the KIDS BEATING CANCER PEDIATRIC TRANSPLANT CENTER at AdventHealth for Children to a fully decorated, fun themed hospital room selected by the child, reducing fear and stress through the “MY ROOM” program. The “FOOD FOR FAMILIES” programs keeps the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center Kitchen stocked with meals, drinks, and snacks to help the families remain strong and less overwhelmed with the fear of not being able to afford the most basic necessity during transplant, food.

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

 

 


“FOOD FOR FAMILIES” are Kids Beating Cancer Meal Vouchers are given to families with a child in the Kids Beating Cancer Pediatric Transplant Center to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the Kids Beating Cancer Kitchen is stocked with meals, drinks, and snacks for the families. Kids Beating Cancer pays for meals so parents don’t have to worry about having cash in order to eat. Parents can order meals to be delivered to their child’s room from any of the hospital cafeterias or one of the community participating restaurants so they don’t have to leave their child alone in order to eat.  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.


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; Disney Princesses, Spiderman, Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, 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.
