Mary Bridge To Implement Photography Program For Kids With Cancer
The hospital will receive an award of $12,595 toward program implementation from the Pablove Foundation. In addition to financial support, Mary Bridge will also be provided a toolkit of facilitator manuals, participant materials and evaluation forms; training and support from the model programâ€™s staff; and access to additional tools and resources.
The Pablove Foundation funds pediatric cancer research and advances in treatment, educates and empowers cancer families, and helps improve the quality of life for children living with cancer through programs like Pablove Shutterbugs, its signature arts program.
The Pablove Shutterbugs program â€” which teaches children living with cancer to express their creative voice through the art of photography â€” is one of three proven cancer support programs included in the 2014 Community Impact Project selected by the LIVESTRONG Foundation. More than 100 qualified hospitals, cancer centers, university students and community organizations in seven regions across the U.S. were selected to participate in the online voting campaign that determined the award recipients.
