Our Victorious 4 Teens Programs
Alicia's Art Cart bridges the gap for older teen patients who may not be mobile and/or in isolation. The Child Life Specialist customizes each cart with supplies such as oil pastels, water-color paints, markers, clay, and beading to create artwork, jewelry, and crafts. (This program is only available to existing Alicia's Art Cart placements).
Teen Kits & Bandana Pillows
Our Teen Kits are a welcome gift for adolescent and young adult patients who are being treated for a critical illness or condition. These kits are designed to make patients feel welcomed, and improve the quality of their hospital stay by reminding them that they are not alone. The drawstring backpacks are filled with items that bring joy and alleviate boredom including our unique All About You Activity Journal. The Teen Kit also includes a handcrafted, soft and comfy Bandana Pillow. This program strives to lift the spirit of a teen with cancer or other life-threatening illness.
