“Books can be a lifeline for seriously ill children.”
When a child is diagnosed with chronic illness, their whole world changes, and they need extra support to manage the distress that comes with being sick.
For children like Ryan, being sick and in the hospital can be scary, stressful, and lonely.
Serious illness causes a child to miss out on life, fall behind in development and struggle mentally.
Without access to specific resources to help, these children may never reach full potential and have lifelong struggles.
We believe finger-tip access to right books can be a tool for intervention, support, and empower a sick child to thrive despite their condition.
Our Read for Wellness, program provides underserved children with serious medical issues, hard cover, and e-books selected for their needs. Books covering topics such as ‘what to expect during a hospital stay’ to ‘tools to handle emotions’ ‘understanding cancer’ and ‘just for fun’ books.
Today, YOU can bring comfort and joy to a sick child by giving the power of books.
“When the power of literacy is paired with the resilience of a sick child – healing knows no boundaries.”
Today, YOU can make a difference! Thank you for caring about children and believing in the power of literacy.
