BounceBack Kids’ mission is to bring together and serve kids with life-challenging medical conditions to enrich the lives of participants and their families.
We serve not only children who are ill but also their parents/guardians and siblings. Our programs recognize the harsh but sometimes forgotten reality that every family member struggles when a child has a life-challenging medical condition. Siblings participate alongside their ill brothers and sisters when we play basketball or do arts and crafts. We offer parents the opportunity to join their children at fun activities or to take some time for respite. We strive to create positive experiences and happy memories during challenging times. Our goals are to bring support and joy to the entire family while enabling our families to build strong relationships with one another.
