We are raising $50,000 toward creating specialist facilities in hospitals throughout the US that ensure young people are treated with others of their own age, in surroundings that are teenage friendly and will help ease the immense stress of illness and treatment.
Our mission is to create social areas where young people can relax with each other and enjoy activities like video games & music during this difficult time.
The teen and young adult centers will have areas such as kitchen and dining areas where they can make their favorite food and relax with other patients and family members. This is important because when you're having treatment for cancer, you're not always hungry at mealtimes, so this ensures young cancer patients can have hot meals whenever they need it.
Study spaces are important in the centers so young patients can keep up with school or college work during treatment and of course video games, books & dvd's. These simple things help distract young people while they go through hours of drug therapy.
