Little Heroes Comfort Program
*** Note: As of Spring 2013, this program has been temporarily put on hold. We will announce through our website when it begins again. ***
What JMML families need the most is a cure for this disease, and we of The JMML Foundation are working steadily toward that goal. In the meantime other needs, large and small, need to be addressed. This is a tough road to walk but you don’t have to walk it alone.
In an effort to get closer to our families and especially to our kids, The JMML Foundation created The Little Heroes Comfort Program. The JMML Foundation put together and sent comfort packages containing age appropriate toys, crafts, and various other activities to show our children that we love them, we care and we are here working and fighting for them. We know that our children have to spend a long time in the hospital or in isolation, so little distractions can go a long way.
