Build community for chronically ill children and their families enabling transformation from surviving to thriving – – until cures are found.
We envision the day when every chronically ill child and their family in America is supported by Bounce Children’s Foundation.
- All kids deserve to be just kids.
- Happier leads to healthier.
- When Bounce children are diagnosed, the entire family is diagnosed.
- No child should lose their childhood to the medical system.
- A child’s work is play.
- Connecting is the core of our human experience.
- Kids are the future, invest in them accordingly.
- Building resilience today creates a lifetime of value.
- A helping hand, not a hand out.
- An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
