Creating 1095 Miracles
Out of personal experience, we have observed that sad stories on the children’s oncology floor at hospitals, become happy ones when we see a sick child playing. A boy diagnosed with ALL ( acute lymphocytic leukemia) spends approximately 3 years in active medical treatment to over come the disease. That is 1095 days. A girl spends 2 ½ years in active chemotherapy treatment.( Numbers may vary depending on the protocol.)
We created LuvABox to realize a goal. We want to serve our children and our medical clinicians and researchers. Our 1095 Campaign advocates and brings life to our belief that structured and unstructured play is a process that children, whatever the reality of their situation, depend upon for their healthy social, emotional, intellectual and physical development.
Play is the life of a child. A cardboard box symbolizes that. We’ve designed and created inexpensive sticker kits for you to purchase and turn an ordinary cardboard box into an opportunity for a child’s imaginative playtime. For parents, the worry and stress of caring for their child with cancer is compounded when they see him/her unable to play. All profits from the sale of LuvABox stickers go to supporting continued research into childhood cancers and the care of children undergoing treatment.
