“These children and families are in the struggle of a lifetime. They count on us to provide excellent, compassionate, and specialized care, especially for children,” said Jennifer Soderholm, chief of development and president of the Children’s Minnesota Foundation. “The kind of care provided by the children’s experts at Children’s Minnesota would not be possible without the support of our business partners and individual donors.”
By shopping at one of more than 30 participating businesses or donating directly to Children’s Minnesota, the community is invited to support local children fighting cancer. Donations enable patient families to access enveloping services that make a difference along the care journey. This includes everything from music therapy to nutritionists to celebrations at the end of chemotherapy. Donations also help alleviate some of the financial burden on families by covering expenses such as meals and parking and providing lodging options for those traveling from out of town.
The Shine Bright for Cancer Kids campaign is presented by Great Clips and includes generous contributions from Pediatric Surgical Associates, Ltd., Prime Therapeutics and many more partners.
