The Keeping Kids Connected program gifts iPads and laptops to young cancer patients to help them remain connected to family, friends and school while actively receiving treatment. This technology provides many valuable roles in a cancer patient’s life. Statistically, children diagnosed with chronic and life threatening illness are less able to attend regular school, and participate in everyday social activities. This program provides an opportunity to regain some normalcy and delivers a valuable communication lifeline to the world outside of the hospital.
Childhood Leukemia Foundation supports technology literacy through hands-on involvement. With the cooperation of health professionals throughout the country, the Keeping Kids Connected program is a priceless resource and investment in the lives of children during and after their cancer battle.
“Isabella received the iPad from your foundation and absolutely loved it. It has made every day at Robert Wood Johnson a little brighter and happier for her. I can’t thank you enough for your generous gift for Isabella during this difficult time in her young life. God bless you.”
