Keriann’s #SiblingsDay Challenge

When a child is diagnosed with cancer or another serious illness, the entire family is affected. Ryan’s Case for Smiles helps kids feel better to heal better by providing whimsical pillowcases to sick children and Coping Boxes to their siblings. On a day when we celebrate the relationships of siblings, please help us give joy and support to siblings in the here and now as they continue to battle and cope with serious illness.

My 2020 #SiblingsDay goal is to raise $150. All donations will help us provide support and resources to children in the hospital. With your help, we can bring smiles to children at a time when they need it the most.

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
