ABOUT THE ORGANIZATION
Helping Kids Feel Better to Heal Better
Ryan's Case for Smiles, with 120 chapters nationwide and deliveries to 363 hospitals, improves the quality of life of children and their families as they undergo treatment for life-changing illnesses and injuries. We are dedicated to the mental health and well-being of the child and their family. Supporting the child's emotional needs can be as important as providing medical care. Ryan's Case for Smiles provides over 200,000 bright cheerful pillowcases per year to children in treatment that give an emotional boost and remind them that they are not defined by their illness. We are developing one of the first initiatives to address pediatric medical post-traumatic stress and help children's entire families better cope and avoid long term emotional trauma. Ryan's Case for Smiles is devoted to helping sick children with life-changing illnesses feel better to heal better.
Ryan's Case For Smiles (CFS) enables children with cancer and other life-changing illnesses, as well as their families, to cope with their illness today, while building resilience to thrive in the future. In short, to feel better to heal better.
