A big part of being a kid/teen is having hobbies and talents which often give kids a feeling of purpose. When kids are diagnosed with a chronic illness, sometimes those hobbies become difficult to keep doing. Not only that, but families spend so much money on the medical side of things, that it can be hard to afford extra curricular activities. These chronically ill children go through so much and they deserve to feel joy and know that they do have a purpose still. Our mission is to restore happiness and purpose through providing chronically ill children and teens with opportunities to develop new skills, talents, ways to have fun, and even avenues for future jobs. We hope to give them new skills they can do, despite their illness. For example, if a child has always wished to play the guitar, we would provide them with a guitar and lessons to learn it. We also understand the financial burden that is placed on parents who have a chronically ill child. We provide basic needs to the family such as food, clothing, assistance with medical bills, etc.
