Want to know more about the Oscar Litwak Foundation, here’s an excerpt from their website:
More than 3 million children are hospitalized annually in the U.S., and many are bed-bound or spend countless hours without being able to leave the hospital premises. Oscar was one of them. Diagnosed when he was just 4 months old with Wilms Tumor- a common form of cancer of the kidneys, he had to undergo several surgeries and spent countless hours receiving treatments without being able to leave the hospital bed. Throughout his illness, the only thing that would comfort him was the possibility of being able to play. Oscar passed-away shortly after turning 4 years old.
Like Oscar, many sick children endure physical and emotional discomfort while receiving medical treatment, but their need to play and instinct to enjoy life never leaves them. In an effort to provide hospitalized children the opportunity to experience the joy and simplicity of childhood, The Oscar Litwak Foundation has successfully created the Mobile Playroom program.
We hope we will see you tomorrow and if you can’t come, why not make a donation to support their awesome Mobile Playroom.
