Why Get Involved?
KRide, Inc. provides the single largest gift to the Children’s Cancer Hope Fund each year to support a position that was created to improve care of children and adolescents with cancer in both inpatient (at Baystate Children’s Hospital) and outpatient (Sadowsky Center for Children) clinical settings. When surveyed, patients, families and staff all agreed that this position was an important step in providing quality care to Baystate children and their families.
As an expert in caring for oncology patients, the staff member who filled this position provides family centered care by ensuring outstanding routine clinical care, patient/family and Nursing education, coordination of care, assistance in specialty clinics and the opportunity to initiate/implement research. In other words, this position allows families to receive timely, individualized attention and emotional support during a difficult time.
However you choose to get involved – cycling, volunteering or sponsoring – you will be one of the many heroes making a difference for children at Baystate Medical Center’s Sadowsky Center for Children.
