Our mission is to provide strength and support for hospitalized children by way of providing Teen Lounges, Social Activities, Events, and other various programming to enhance the quality of life for adolescents with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
Our Victorious 4 Teens Programs
Teen Lounges & Enhancements
We help provide funding for the specific purpose of creating a new, non-existing Teen Lounge, or enhancing/renovating an existing Teen Lounge. This is a specific space with a minimum size of 15 x 15 for the significant purpose of providing a social or quiet space for adolescents and young adults ages 13 and older. A Teen Lounge is a special place designed to help patients take a welcome break from their treatment and a way to meet others their age, and support each other. Here they can watch movies, play video games, communicate with friends and family online or just relax. Teen lounges include board games, computers, big screen TV, pool table, gaming systems, age-appropriate furnishings, and much more. It is all about enhancing the quality of life for teens with cancer during the many visits and stays at the hospital.
Teen Activities & Events
We also support funding for social activities and/or events within the Hospital. Special events may include Pizza Parties, Tye-Dye Parties, Movie Nights, Battle of the Bands, Teen Proms, Homecomings, and other creative in-hospital teen social activities.
Alicia's Art Cart
Alicia's Art Cart bridges the gap for older teen patients who may not be mobile, &/or in isolation. It is an attractive, mobile, and lockable unit, with shelves and drawers, and ships fully assembled. The hospital Child Life Staff oversees and supervises the Cart. With the initial funding, contents can be purchased with ONLY with age-appropriate items for the older population.
Teen Kits & Bandana Pillows
Our Teen Kits are designed for teens ages 13 and older. The backpacks are filled with items that provide care and comfort, and to lift the spirit of a teen with cancer or other life-threatening illness. Our one-of-a-kind Bandana Pillows are handcrafted using 100% cotton made in the USA bandanas.
