SUNSHINE KIDS PROVIDES YEAR-ROUND PROGRAMMING, FREE OF CHARGE, FOR CHILDREN WITH CANCER AND THEIR FAMILIES.
The Sunshine Kids Foundation adds quality of life to children with cancer by providing them with exciting, positive group activities and opportunities, so they may once again do what kids are meant to do...have fun and celebrate life!
National trips are week-long trips provided throughout the year for teenage cancer patients from
hospitals across the United States and Canada.
National trips are hosted in exciting destinations throughout the United States where teenage cancer patients have the opportunity to participate in once-in-a-lifetime opportunities while meeting other kids, their same age, also battling a childhood cancer diagnosis. Sunshine Kids are chaperoned by medical volunteers from participating hospitals and Foundation staff.
Local activities are provided across the United States for Sunshine Kids of all ages and their families and include a variety of exciting opportunities. Activities range from weekend teen getaways to celebrity meet and greets, art programs, holiday parties, professional sports events and so much more! The focus is on allowing kids to just be kids while giving families the opportunity to meet other families who are battling a childhood cancer diagnosis just like they are.
Our in-hospital programs bring sunshine and smiles to children with cancer inside the hospital environment to help brighten the day and provide a positive distraction for patients and families experiencing lengthy hospital stays or clinic visits.
AND THAT’S NOT ALL…
Sunshine Kids also supports our patients, their families and hospital partners through the following programs:

Birthday Program – celebrating each and every one of our courageous young cancer fighters on their birthday
