Welcome to For The Kids Foundation
Fighting Childhood Cancer
Each year thousands of children are seen in the Hematology / Oncology section at The Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida for treatment. Hundreds more are hospitalized for treatment. Many think that these children are too sick to play; truth is that these kids still have energy and often get bored being in the hospital. The For The Kids Foundation is a nonprofit organization that believes in the healing power of smiling and laughter.
Our mission is to bring joy and happiness to the pediatric patients at The Golisano Children’s Hospital of Southwest Florida. The entertainment and activities provided by our foundation help distract the children from the medical treatment that they receive. Our goal is to provide the activities and entertainment while supporting the Child Life Specialists at the hospital. We help create a fun, child friendly atmosphere at The Golisano Children’s Hospital and provide items to make children feel more comfortable and relaxed during their stay at the hospital or while they get their treatment. With your assistance, we can help these children win the battle against childhood cancer and blood disorders.
