Developed by StudentsCare founder Erica Sokol in 2010, our Hospital Buddy Program has already impacted hundreds of college students and provided friendship, support, and hope to children with cancer and their families. This program aims to empower undergraduate students in healthcare and related fields to make a difference in the lives of seriously ill children and their families. Students are matched one-on-one with inpatient children being treated for cancer. Students get to know and connect with these children by visiting them in the hospital on a continual basis. Students engage the children in activities, organize birthday parties, celebrate important milestones, and provide opportunities for the children to have fun and just be kids,even while in the hospital.
