At Casey Cares, they know how difficult life can be for families with critically ill children. They help keep families' spirits high by arranging programming - whether it's a simple movie night and a fresh pair of pajamas or attending a major sporting event. Casey Cares makes life a lot better by adding a personal touch throughout the year and making lasting memories.
Casey Cares knows that the best palliative care comes from continuous, ongoing support. Casey Cares bi-monthly customized programs give families dozens of opportunities to create positive family memories. Many of their patients will be receiving active treatment for years and this will impact their siblings, parents and their community. They focus on the entire family, not simply the sick child.
Casey Cares provides a number of programs for these families. Everything from Family Festivities to Birthday Blasts and so much more. The support offered by these organized events can provide the exact respite the children and their family need. You can learn more on their website and donate here.
