What we do
Our mission is based on three fundamentals: Happiness, Health, and Hope. It’s with these in mind that we have created more than 20 different programs to support families in their brave and emotionally taxing fight.
To fuel their happiness, we provide children and their families with opportunities to step away from the white walls of the hospital and partake in joyous events that give them the strength to fight their disease. Families are able to embark on dream trips to Orlando, Los Angeles, or Eilat; attend summer camps with sporting activities, water park adventures, and exciting jeep tours. We enjoy holiday events like Purim, Sukkot, and Passover with a loving and supportive community that understands the challenges the families are facing.
To create a smooth path to health, we provide emotional support to children and their families through professional psychological care and support group sessions, financial assistance in purchasing critical medicine they cannot afford, and logistical support in navigating the bureaucracy of the health care system -- which, for many families, includes translating all documents and medical explanations to their native language.
In addition, we support children’s oncology wards in any way we can -- from financing innovative treatments, to providing the funds necessary to open more positions, and more.
To instill hope in the heart of every child, parent, and sibling affected by childhood cancer, we have built The Kindergarten of Dreams in central Israel that is equipped to provide a medically safe, socially enriching, and educational environment for the young children to grow and heal as their parents go to work. Through our public advocacy efforts, we are helping to build a brighter future for all families, by promoting government policy changes relating to health care costs, hospital conditions, and overall support for families with sick children.
