#SiblingsDay Challenge

Since 2007, Ryan’s Case for Smiles has been delivering whimsical pillowcases to hospitalized children supporting our mission of helping kids feel better to heal better.  Transitioning to today, we also focus on the family members and the siblings of children suffering from life-changing illnesses or injuries who often experience PTSD symptoms watching their loved ones fight through their illness.

Ryan’s Case for Smiles is launching a new #SiblingsDay challenge. We are starting this campaign on International Siblings Day, April 10, 2020 to emphasize the importance of the bond between siblings and are committing resources to make sure the siblings of hospitalized children are OK too. We will be raising money for essential materials to create Coping Boxes for the siblings of sick kids and for coping resources that can be given to their families.

If you are able to at this time, please consider donating. To help us spread the word, you can post a picture of you and your sibling(s) on social media and tag @caseforsmiles so others can see.  You can also use the hashtag #siblingsdaychallenge and #nationalsiblingsday.  Any amount is appreciated!  THANK YOU!

ABOUT US

Ryan’s Case for Smiles was started twelve years ago by Cindy Kerr when her son Ryan was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma (bone cancer) at the age of 12. While Ryan is no longer with us, his inspiration has led our growth to include 120 chapters serving over 75,000 children each year at more than 363 hospitals worldwide, having delivered over 2 million pillowcases to date. Our work has expanded from donated pillowcases to multiple programs designed to help children and families navigate one of life’s most difficult experiences. Recognizing that the negative effects of health-related stress continue long after treatment, CFS developed CopingSpace.org which offers tools and resources in a web-based format for caregivers, siblings, schools, and the community of a sick or injured child. These resources for the child’s caregiver provide evidence-based information that will help them cope with diagnosis, treatment and recovery while building resilience along the way.  DONATE NOW
