Watch the video below to see what life is like, as a parent, fighting cancer in the hospital. This is Our Family's Story.


Reunite families fighting cancer. Create a space for meaningful moments while in the hospital. 

We provide family-friendly playrooms in adult cancer hospitals within the United States. These playrooms provide a sanctuary where families come together to play with toys, games, create memorable pieces of art together, read books, relax in an environment with murals that bring the outside IN, and watch child-friendly movies in comfortable furniture. To this date, there are no family playrooms in adult cancer hospitals in the U.S.  Our first family playroom had a ribbon cutting that happened on May 18, 2021. This was the FIRST FAMILY PLAYROOM AT AN ADULT CANCER HOSPITAL IN THE US, thanks to YOU!! OhioHealth Proud to Welcome Families to Alex’s Sunnyside Playroom on the Riverside Methodist Hospital Campus

Our second family playroom opened at OSUCC-The James at the end of 2023. Do you know of a hospital that would be interested in helping families battling cancer? Please message us!


Based on our discussions with other non-profits that have placed respite rooms, customized playrooms and bereavement rooms in children's hospitals and maternity hospitals, we estimate the cost of (1) family playroom as $50-$75K, depending on the requirements of each hospital.
