IGW Pediatric Cancer Foundation provides a Toy Closet for children to help minimize the trauma of painful procedures, such as spinal taps, bone marrow biopsies, chemotherapy, and prolonged hospital stays.
Chemotherapy treatments and diagnostic procedures can be devastatingly painful to a child. Many children enter the IGW Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s office in tears and leave with a smile on their face after selecting a toy from the shelves. It is absolutely amazing how much joy a simple toy can make on a day when everything else was not very much fun.
(We ask that the toys be between $5-$15 in value. Due to IGW Pediatric Cancer Foundation’s policies, no stuffed toys or toys that resemble weapons are allowed.)
