To create and provide innovative patient- and family-centered tools and resources that reduce anxiety and improve communication between children, families and medical teams, in order to inspire improved outcomes and make a positive impact in the recoveries of children and families facing medical challenges.
When a child faces an illness, injury or disease, the family often experiences overwhelming psychological and logistical stressors in their efforts to access the care that their child requires to "Get Well". Just within our small state of Delaware, each year thousands of Kent and Sussex County children and families must travel long distances to seek specialized pediatric care in Wilmington, Baltimore or Philadelphia. Get Well Maps encourage children and families towards wellness by facilitating a fun, engaging method that helps children visually track medical progress with their medical teams. And when Get Well Maps are paired with supplemental resources, like gas cards, families benefit from practical tools to navigate challenging medical experiences. This fundraiser is important to raise awareness and funding for child- and family-centered Get Well Map resources that ease anxiety and enhance communication between children, families and medical teams.
