Camp Hands of Hope- hosted twice a year in South Carolina for youth ages 5-18 and their families who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Sometimes, a child’s laughter and playfulness masks an inner pain. We recognize that children grieve in many different ways. They want support from their peers and to know that there are others with similar challenges. For these reasons, we created Camp Hands of Hope, a safe, caring environment where families can express their feelings and connect with others going through similar experiences. Contact us for more information.
Technology for Hope- The Foundation provides funding for telemedical assistance to pediatric hospice and palliative care patients to allow the patient and family to communicate more frequently with their interdisciplinary team. Telemedicine improves patient care by allowing medical information to be exchanged from one site to another via electronic communications. The Foundations telemedical assistance includes a growing variety of applications and services using two-way video, email, smart phones, wireless tools and other forms of telecommunications technology.
