ABOUT         Alliance For Kids

Alliance For Kids is a registered 501©(3) nonprofit organization. The Mission of Alliance For Kids, Inc. is to provide innovative programs and resources to enhance healthcare specialist services for hospitalized patients and their families. We started in 2011 when Jane Miller and her team of Child Life Specialists saw that parents of hospitalized children needed more resources. They created a resource database on common childhood diseases and illnesses that would be a resource for families before, during, and after their hospital experience. From there, we had our first major donation of different types of stuffed animals which we presented to a group of hospitalized children to determine their favorite. It was a unanimous vote, the children loved the monkey. This is where our programs began.

 

Our award-winning programs tackle issues as small as providing activities for a child, to large issues of reducing 5-day readmission rates and research to advance healthcare. Child Life Specialists work together with our Life Pain Specialists to educate hospitalized patients in patient-centered care terms on what they will be experiencing while using our programs. Our patient-centered care programs help distract patients while they are undergoing difficult procedures and teach them how to manage pain. Our research is focused on advancing healthcare. 

A Letter from the CEO and Founding Chair

 

We celebrate our 9th anniversary this year.

2020 will be a year none of us ever forgets. Our lives have changed so quickly it’s hard to imagine a silver lining in a year of Covid -19. I think it’s essential to start by being grateful for the precious things we do have. One of our most valuable strengths is the caring board of directors who are working hard to help us not only survive but strive to continue our vision, making a difference in the lives of those faced with hospitalization.

 

Like many of us, we are struggling to find our “new normal” in this new age. We may not be able to continue in the way we did before. 

 

We Have To Do What We Can. We have to adapt and adopt new ways of thinking and new ways of helping and healing. Ways we could only dream of before. 

 

We have adapted our new Life Pain Specialist position to include training for emotional support for patients with covid -19. We are proud to say we converted 2000 Super Serum Shields into 4000 face shields for our healthcare heroes.

 

After the storm comes the rainbow, we recently were asked to be partners of research on immunotherapy treatment options for patients with cancer and covid-19 and early detection for certain types of cancers. Once developed, this new treatment’s delivery method can be by patch or what we like to call the latest version of our “Super Serum Shield.” The new shield (patch) will take the scary IV out of traditional chemotherapy of certain cancers for kids of all ages.

 

We are looking forward to being a part of this innovative research. We invite you to join us in this new Superhero Adventure. Be apart of the team that develops advanced treatments for the enemies of covid-19 and specific types of cancer. 

 

 

Be safe, Be well, Be kind, and Be happy,

 

Jane Miller
