As children go through treatment for pediatric cancer, the necessary care often requires travel, which causes strain on transportation, work routines, cooking meals and other aspects of everyday life. Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is dedicated to helping children battling illnesses by providing families with housing, compassionate care and resources during their medical treatment.
With your support, we are able to partner with incredible organizations who are leading the fight against pediatric cancer and supporting superheroes all around the country. One Summit is an amazing organization which empowers children battling cancer to build self-confidence, resilience and courage. Through the Climb for Courage program and mentorship with a Navy SEAL, children face and overcome different challenges and learn to apply resilience to their childhood cancer journey.
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, life is turned upside-down for the entire family. Daily necessities and tasks such as work, cooking meals, grocery shopping and laundry are extremely difficult to balance both financially and emotionally as treatment becomes a family’s primary concern.
Staying in the hospital can be very difficult for children and teenagers and their families. During this challenging time, often the simplest things are the most comforting, such as a warm hat, a soft blanket or a note of encouragement.
PAB’S PACKS creates packs filled with comfort items to support children and teens during their stay in the hospital. Founded by two best friends who both experienced long days in the hospital as teenagers, this organization is determined to make hospital stays better for other children and teens.
We are proud to partner with PAB’S PACKS to spread hope and encouragement to more superheroes around the country. This year, we are funding 500 packs, complete with a Love Your Melon beanie in each pack!
Check out our cobranded Love Your Melon + PAB’S PACKS beanie (pictured above) - a beanie that shows our collaboration and shared commitment to make a difference in children’s lives. To create a cobranded beanie for your organization, team or company, check out our brand new Custom Beanie Program!
