If you know of a child battling cancer that would benefit from an iPAD please encourage them to apply.  The application and criteria for the iPad program are found below. J4AC seeks to enhance the lives of kids battling cancer through our iPad program. Ipads facilitate a child’s communication with friends and family during long hospital stays, ipads help kids stay on track at school, provide them with entertainment during long treatments and most of all bring smiles to these brave kids.

We use the following criteria for the application decisions: kids who have long treatment periods ahead of them; kids in-patient, who spend lengthy periods of time in isolation and/or away from family, siblings, friends; kids who are in regular out-patient programs that make long drives to and from facilities on a regular basis; kids receiving lengthy treatments on a regular basis; kids who have no access to any type of computer or electronic device; children spending long periods away from school where an iPad would assist in staying on track; and children that might derive physical therapy benefit through use of applications that assist with motor skills, etc.  The program is intended to facilitate a child’s communication with friends and family, to allow them to utilize apps that might help them through tough treatments, improve skills, stay on grade level during absences from school, provide entertainment and create smiles for brave kids that are fighting a horrible battle with cancer each and every day.
