To hospitals that aid cancer patients from ages 3-15 who need to keep the patients happy and healthy, Battle Buddiez is the non profit organization that connects high school students with cancer patients in oncology wards that create bonds while making sure the patients are having fun and are distracted from treatment because they need a chance to feel like a normal kid and having someone act as a role model in their presence.
As a patient you would get a chance to receive an older role model to get a break from stress. You’ll get the opportunity to play, color, or even talk to a 17+ student.
We recently decided to do a Holiday Toy Drive to help raise toys for patients at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago. From December fourth through the fourteenth we set up bins around their school and sold brass ornaments of the front of Lake Forest high school to raise extra money for more toys. After all of the fundraising, the group was able to collect just over 150 toys.
