Our Programs
When faced with hospitalization, children require excellent medical care to help heal their bodies, but they also need support and experiences that safeguard their minds and hearts.

Creative Play Experiences
Through our signature Creative Play Experiences, we partner with hospitals and nonprofit organizations to bring personalized, empowering experiences that remove children from their day-to-day life of treatment, restore a bit of normalcy, and allow children to experience the joy of 'just-being-a-kid'.
Express, Create, Heal: The Childhood Cancer Chapter
Through ECH: TCCC, we train volunteers to implement evidence based strategies to provide tools, resources, events, and support proven to improve the mental health and quality of life of families affected by childhood cancer at in-person and virtual programs.
