When someone has cancer, the whole family and everyone who loves them does, too.
Their battle often starts that day, with their child being admitted to start treatment, and everything else comes to a screeching halt.
Ready Bags include everything a family might need for their unexpected hospital stay – toiletries, a blanket, a journal, a tablet and more. These essentials are helpful, but we hope they also send a message to each family that they are not alone as they begin this journey.
This is Roc Solid’s first step toward building hope in a situation nobody ever hopes to face.
Ready Bags are distributed through partnerships with nearly 50 children’s hospitals throughout the country. We will continue to push this initiative forward until we reach the 16,000 kids who are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. each year.
If you are a family interested in requesting a Ready Bag, we encourage you to talk to your child life specialist or social worker about this program, and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Thank you to our major Ready Bag partners:
