How You Can Help
Please consider all the families out there that do not have insurance, or have insurance policies that will not pay for medical equipment for these children. These kids need this equipment to regain their skills, and help them get stronger after surgery. Not all families are fortunate to have the money to pay the $8 per day for parking, or the money to pay to eat out every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Some do not have family and friends close by to bring them home cooked meals.
Any donation, in any amount will help us provide free parking, hot meals, and possibly even medical/therapy equipment to these families.

"The gift cards allowed us to focus on our daughter's medical needs and not worry about how we were going to
pay for dinner that night or how much
parking was going to cost at the end
of our long stay."
"The Plotkins are angels and their
foundation is one that deserves to be
recognized and supported. They are
people, just like you and me, and
