The Kindles For Kids Story...

Kindles for Kids 2019 2

When sisters Molly and Madison Schwanz discovered their friend Trevor was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2011, they were inspired to help. Together they planned and organized a neighborhood lemonade stand to raise money.

Over the course of a few months and with additional funds from friends and neighbors, they collected enough to purchase Trevor an electronic reader to keep him company during treatment. They delivered his “reader” along with a simple note attached letting him know “people were rooting for him and to stay strong.” At the time, he was struggling with treatment and side effects that required numerous hospital stays.  Although too weak to get out of bed or even open the gift, his spirits were tremendously lifted and it supplied him with motivation and encouragement to stay strong.

After seeing and hearing what their gift meant to Trevor and his family on numerous levels, they decided to expand their idea.  Why didn't every kid who was going through cancer treatment deserve this? They wanted others to have the same uplifting experience as Trevor. After months of research, networking and coincidental events, plans were underway to make their dream a reality. 

For the past 8 years, family and friends have come together along with others in the community to make “Kindles for Kids” a reality. Molly and Maddie have made this an annual family tradition and delivered hundreds of Kindles to kids receiving treatment at the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. This year their wish is to expand the program beyond Kindles and include other electronic devices for the kids undergoing treatment as well. Please help us by donating today and let them know “we are rooting for them!”
