Our mission is to bring joy into the lives of chronically ill children by providing them with activities they can do despite their illness, as well as providing for their basic needs.
These children face daily doctor’s appointments, hundreds of missed school days, endless pain, frequent hospital visits, reoccurring surgeries, and missed childhood opportunities. We want to bring them chronic joy, as they face chronic pain. We are one of the only nonprofits that helps chronically ill children, ages 3-18, on an ongoing basis. Our mission is joy. Will you join us?
Help us grant ‘Joys’ to chronically ill kids & teens.
All proceeds go directly to helping kids and teens with chronic illness.
Please consider donating today! Every dollar counts!
