Bounce Children’s Foundation builds community for chronically ill and their families enabling their transformation from surviving to thriving – until cures are found.
While many individuals/organizations support kids when they are hospitalized, things change once they are home. Bounce provides support to chronically ill children, their parents, and their siblings both at home and in the community. It builds resilience by bringing members together for fun and friendship, learning and sharing, and by creating a support structure for all. Totally unique, Bounce is the only organization providing this much- needed support and filling this critical gap in the overall care & health of seriously ill kids and their families.
