A hospital can be a scary place for a child, especially for pediatric cancer patients. Recent studies have proven what Making Headway has known for decades: the hospital’s physical environment affects the patients’ experiences, emotional needs, and health outcomes. Every child at the Hassenfeld Children’s Center is able to benefit from the enhanced playroom and activities supported by Making Headway. Through our programs, Making Headway has transformed the halls and the playroom into a fun, healthy place for children and families. On any given day, children of all ages and backgrounds can be found happily absorbed in arts and crafts activities, games, or munching on healthy, delicious snacks. Professional entertainers and child therapists are also part of the playroom team, helping the whole family feel comfortable, relaxed and welcome.
