Care packages for kids with cancer are sent directly to their homes in our effort to make their day a little brighter as they open up a box of surprises. Packages are assembled specifically for a child's age and interests by volunteers in our office in Towson, Maryland. If you know of a child with cancer who might enjoy a Cool Kids Care Package, please download the form below and return it to us. We must first verify that the child is a pediatric oncology patient. Provide hospital contact information or a letter from the child’s life/social worker.

"Thank you so very much — I am completely overwhelmed!!! Your package arrived over the weekend and we decided to wait until this morning to open it to give us something to look forward to after Connor's big brother and sister left for school. Connor excitedly ran home from the bus stop to open his present. He has been playing ever since!! The Under Armour bag is so cool - wait until Megan and Ryan see it!! It will now become his new hospital bag for special toys. Connor LOVES the Matchbox set. We've never seen a "pop-up" play set before. It will be PERFECT for the hospital bed. Connor plays with cars and trucks for hours while sitting in bed-this will be a whole lot of added fun!! He's also already planning to wear his new football PJ's tonight in honor of the Raven's game. Finally, I can't imagine how you knew Chili's is our favorite family restaurant! It's the one place we can go and all find our favorites. Thank you for bringing happiness to our family today."
