Any iPads, or MacBooks or MacBook Airs or MacBook Pros just collecting dust or ready to get replaced? Cancer kids can put them to good use.
If your organization has any used but basically "working" MacBooks (regular, pros or airs), or iPads, please consider sending it to me for my "Macs for Cancer Kids" campaign (I can fix some things, but working is preferred). Contact me here or email me.
I've seen firsthand what kind of helpful distraction this type of equipment provides in clinics and hospitals when receiving painful and nauseating chemo treatments, transfusions and lumbar punctures.
My 11 year old son was diagnosed with Leukemia 16 months ago followed by many painful and nauseating clinic and hospital visits and more to come over the next several years including the above referenced blood lab work, transfusions and lumbar punctures. In fact, I'm sitting next to him at his cancer clinic right now while he receives treatment and I've witnessed two of his worst days since the initial treatment just after his original diagnosis and hospital stay over the past couple of days.
It's no joy ride. But this equipment can help keep their minds off these painful procedures and distract them when they feel miserable with gaming like Minecraft, etc. It can also help them do their school work online when necessary because they often can't be in school with immune systems at zero during these necessary treatment years. Please consider and contact me through my contact form or just email me if you want to help and can help. Thank you!!
