It has undoubtedly been a year like no other for all of us, but for the critically ill children and their families served by Friends of Karen, life remains complicated. As the rest of the world prepares to return to something a bit more normal, our families are still experiencing severe financial hardships added to the overwhelming stress of their child’s illness.

Friends of Karen’s 2021 Back to School program will address today’s educational needs for our critically ill children and siblings, who may or may not be able to attend in-person school programs due to their illness. The children need your help NOW.

Will you help our children have a successful school year?
You can help us reach our goal of providing 750 children with gift cards for school supplies and new clothing, funds to cover internet access for school work, and support from Friends of Karen’s family support team.

We cannot reach our goal without you!
Here’s how you can help.
