Join The For a Day Foundation's quest to ease life of a child with cancer.
Living in a hospital, not a playhouse.
Attached to an IV pole.
Poked with needles instead of tickling fingers.
Sleeping in because chemo is exhausting, not because of an all-night sleepover.
You get the point. Being a kid treated for a life-threatening disease deprives you of part of your childhood.
The For a Day Foundation brings it back.
We are committed to creating emotionally therapeutic experiences for seriously ill children and providing them and their families with a joyful and much needed diversion from the strain of chronic treatment.
Our hospital parties are simple but effective.
Queen for a Day = tiaras, feather boas, bright red lips and hot pink fingernails. Blowing kisses to nurses, doctors, other little queens.
Hero for a Day = mini-firefighters, police officers, and super heroes. "Flying" up and down the halls in a cape. Chillin' with fellow firefighters in real gear. Taking a ride in the firetruck basket.
Designer for a Day = high fashion photo shoot. Strutting the runway. Front row at a major fashion show. Sketching your designs with a fashion designer.
