Our Mission – Helping Kids Cope with Cancer

Helping kids cope with cancer… Mikey’s Way.

Our Mission at Mikey’s Way Foundation is to enrich the lives of children suffering from cancer and other life threatening illnesses. The Foundation strives to create CONNECTION and DIVERSION to help children cope with the emotional and physical hardships of long term, debilitating treatment.

We accomplish this with the use of today’s technology – laptop computers, tablets, iPod Touch and other Wi-Fi ready electronics. We distribute these electronic gifts using both our Mikey’s Way Day and Mikey’s Wish List Programs.

More about how Mikey’s Way Gifts Help Kids Cope With Cancer.

The electronic gifts we distribute are uniquely suited to serve the pediatric patient undergoing long-term treatment.  They are Wi-Fi ready, able to connect with friends and family during long periods of isolation.  Since they are portable, they can travel between appointments, procedures and home.  Our Mikey’s Way electronic gifts are adaptable, relative and engaging as the patient matures and grows through his/her stages of development.  In addition, Mikey’s Way gifts return a sense of empowerment to the patient at a time when most decision making has been taken away.  Lastly, the gifts are durable, designed to last from the first day of diagnosis to the completion of treatment, which lasts on average about three years.

Since our founding in 2005, Mikey’s Way Foundation has helped over 6,500 children cope with cancer… Mikey’s Way.
