Keep Kids Connected


The wonderful people at our clinic recently introduced us to another fantastic charity called Keep Kids Connected.  Kids undergoing chemo have to spend so much time at the hospital away from friends, home, and things to do.  Through the donation of a NetBook to those who apply, Keep Kids Connected aims to bring entertainment to children with cancer everywhere.  Cool, right?


Who We Are:  Keep Kids Connected

What We Do: Keep Kids Connected was created to help keep kids connected to their family and friends while they are undergoing treatment for cancer or other life-threatening illnesses. The organization was inspired by Caitlyn Mortus (pictured left) who is, herself, a cancer survivor.

How To Apply: If you are or have a child with cancer, visit here to download and print the application!

How To Donate: They can't do it without the loving support of people like you and me.  You can spread the word by liking their Facebook page, or you can donate money to their cause.  Visit here to learn more!
