The foundation is working to bring informative and hands-on programming centered around the healing arts to Hampton Roads.
Let's Go to the Benjamin Goldberg Foundation Playroom
The playroom will support hematology/oncology hosting young patients and cover 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 and need to know they are safe and free to play and explore, create, and be innovative in a space that is their own. The playroom will provide a loving and warm environment where they can be feel like a child free from cancer.

Sharing DMT with our local medical community at Children's Hospital of the Kings Daughters (CHKD) January 23, 2020
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.
