Think of a pediatric oncology patient checking into the hospital for treatment. Upon arrival their room looks pretty much like every other in the hospital… except on the bed where they find a brightly colored pillowcase that was selected by a caring nurse.
A Case for Caring provides unique, fun pillowcases for pediatric oncology patients. Nurses have told us about the positive emotional impact this simple item can have on a hospitalized child. It personalizes their bed during treatment and they take it home when they leave.
Will you Help?
Our first recipient hospitals will be Central DuPage Hospital in Illinois, and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital in California. Our goal is to put 100 pillowcases in the storage room at each hospital so that nurses will have plenty from which to choose for their incoming patients.
We are soliciting either pillowcases or contributions to support this project.
