The Backpack Program
The Backpack program was started in 2013 and designed to provide a bright, new backpack to each child upon admission to 7 West. Depending upon the child’s age, the backpack is loaded with pens, pencils, crayons, a toothbrush, toothpaste, electronic games, iTunes gift cards, gift certificates for food, and many other fun items to let them know we support them in their fight. Join our sponsors in supporting Jarrett’s Backpack program through a $50 donation. Each donation helps defray the cost of the backpack and its contents.
As we seek to find new ways to provide a little joy to our patients on 7 West, we ask for your continued support to make it possible. If you know of someone dealing with childhood cancer who needs support, we are always looking for more ways to help ease the fight and help these families.
Become a regular donor and support our cause to bring smiles to the kids on 7 West.
If you own a business, are creative, or are willing to donate to our auction, please contact Dana Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
