Wish List

Life can be overwhelming for kids and families experiencing a life-threatening health crisis. Upon diagnosis many of these families must travel urgently from home to Madison, leaving necessary belongings behind. As they navigate through their child’s illness journey, they have additional needs, hard to meet while missing work as they care for their child.

You can give these families a jump start by providing them with some of the basics so they can focus their resources and energy on overcoming barriers and moving forward on the path to wellness. Read below to see how you can make a difference for families in our community. For sanitary and safety reasons, please keep in mind that we can only accept new, unopened items. We also prefer travel-sized items when possible.

Your activities like support group and quarterly parties helped my son be himself again after being sick for so long. Our family feels so normal when participating in your events. Badger Childhood Cancer Network has been a safety net for us when we’ve felt we’ve lost our way.
