For Families

Roc Solid builds hope for kids fighting cancer by providing Ready Bags to families just after diagnosis and surprising kids with backyard playsets.

To the families and friends of families who are experiencing the devastating news of a pediatric cancer diagnosis, we are so sorry for what you are going through. The mission of Roc Solid is to build hope for your family, and we hope that our community can provide the support that you need during this difficult journey.

Please continue reading to learn about the programs that we provide to help build hope for your family.

The Roc Solid Community

Roc Solid Ready Bags

Roc Solid Ready Bags are typically distributed through our partner children’s hospitals throughout the country, but the program is growing quickly to more areas. If your child has been recently diagnosed, please contact us, and one of our team members will reach out to you with more information.

Roc Solid On Demand

Roc Solid On Demand (or “ROD”) brings play to kids fighting cancer throughout the contiguous U.S. We package and ship everything needed to make the process simple and unforgettable.

Applications may be completed by families themselves, or close family members/friends who may want to help with the building process.

If it’s your child who is fighting cancer, we encourage you ask a friend, an extended family member, or a local group (church, school, civic group, etc.)… think about who’s been asking “What can I do to help?” We’ll make sure that person has everything he or she needs to make it happen.

Visit the links below to learn more about how it works, and if you’d like to apply, scroll to the bottom of this page to get started.

Play it Forward

Through our Play It Forward initiative, we are able to build playsets throughout Virginia and North Carolina. Talk to your child life specialist or social worker to find out more, and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
