Teen Kits

The Alicia Rose “Victorious” Foundation provides a “Teen Kit” and Bandana Pillow for newly admitted teenage patients with life-threatening illnesses at hospitals across the country. The “Kit” contains comfort items that were specifically designed by teens to meet their unique needs during their inpatient stay at a hospital. Our dedicated volunteers help assemble over 2,000 kits and pillows every year to ship to hospitalized teenagers nationwide.

The kit may include:

  • Custom Nylon ARVF Backpack
  • "All About You" Activity Journal
  • Clip-on Reading Light
  • Playing Cards
  • Lip Balm
  • Tic-Tac mints
  • Socks
  • The "Victorious Voice" Newsletter
  • ARVF Pen
  • "Stronger Than" T-shirt with fabric marker
  • Custom Bandana Pillow
