Let's Go to The Benjamin Goldberg Playroom
Providing support to hematology/oncology hosting young patients and covering costs related to integrated medicine therapies such as; dance therapy, yoga, and guided meditation.
Children facing cancer require special consideration when it comes to playtime. This is a loving and warm environment where they are safe and free to explore, create, and be innovative in a space that is their own.
In 2019, we completed our first project raising $20,000 for a home treatment option for children receiving immunotherapy infusions in their fight against leukemia. Currently, children receiving this treatment must spend 28 days in the hospital to receive continuous infusions. However, CADD infusion backpacks allow a child to receive drug therapy in the comfort of their own home.
It is heartwarming to see the backpacks in the clinic where it all started for us—knowing the benefits of giving families normalcy when navigating the devastating world of childhood cancer. The CADD backpacks have already provided 224 days of treatment to the oncology patients at CHKD.
