Current economic conditions have caused a big stress on many families lives. Many parents of children battling cancer have to have one parent quit their job to care for their child, making life even more difficult. Now some families are experiencing even greater hardship. Working directly with hospitals to provide fundraising to help families with mortgages, utilities, car payments, etc.
Protective masks have always been a requirement around the most vulnerable. Now that wearing masks are a requirement in most places, we have undergone a campaign to provide fun, uplifting protective masks that can even be worn over N95 and other masks to make the experience more fun and exciting for children in the hospital, their families and nurses.
Wearing surgical and protective masks take a toll on everyone's ears. Given current conditions and requirements to were masks, especially to protect the most vulnerable children, we have undergone a campaign to make ear saver headbands for children, their families and nurses and other healthcare professionals, to help alleviate the discomfort to their ears.
