Hopecam is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to overcome the social isolation experienced by children diagnosed with cancer everyday. The need for Hopecam’s services has never been greater. COVID-19 caused a widespread switch from in-person medical visits and classes to virtual ones. Children and families battling cancer now depend on their tablets, chromebooks and Wi-Fi hotspots for telehealth, and communicating with their friends, family, school, and even medical teams.
In 2020, we gave $25,000 to Hopecam to directly support the purchase of these technologies so that they can continue to virtually connect their Superheroes with the people they need most. Our gift will also fund resources and equipment for those children's’ schools to be able to broadcast classes and enable them to receive the education and learning without barriers.
Our funding this year of $10,000 will support the 2022 "Champions of Hope" initiative, which will allow Hopecam to expand into new communities and serve more children with cancer at a time when they need connectivity more than ever.
