Pediatric cancer patients and their families spend a lot of their time at clinics and hospitals waiting either for doctor visits, infusions, blood draws, procedures, etc. The focus of our art programs are to provide distraction therapy so that time moves a little faster for these amazing warriors. As such, we provide project kits which patients can do wherever they are as all materials and instructions are included. We have partnered with Nailed It DIY who provides these kits on a monthly basis so we can distribute to Child Life Specialists at Nicklaus, Holtz, Joe DiMaggio, Palm Beach, The Salah Foundation Children's Hospitals as well as to the Miami Cancer Institute (MCI) at Baptist Health and UM/alex's place.
In addition, as COVID restrictions are eased we are returning to in-person visits with ClayWorld Studio and Nailed It DIY. In person visits are currently taking place at Nicklaus Children's Hospital. We hope to be back to MCI, UM/alex's place and Holtz Children's Hospital in the new year.
We believe the time these children spend with each artist and/or project eases their suffering if even for a little while. For forty-five minutes to an hour, they can almost forget where they are and why they are there.
