Welcome to

A Moment of Magic

Every 60 seconds a child is in need of medical care.

The most prominent and powerful coping mechanism in childhood is play. Medically vulnerable children demonstrate a greater need to play because of the stress generated by unfamiliar environments, unpredictable schedules, painful experiences, and mobility restrictions due to illness or treatment. Creating moments of fun, empowering experiences for children decisively contributes to emotional, mental well-being, self-confidence and self-esteem.
