Transforming the lives of chronically ill children, and their families,
enabling the shift from surviving to thriving -- until cures are found. 
It's the most wonderful time of year!

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or simply the arrival of a new year, it's the season of HOPE. I feel it in the streets and stores, among friends, and while enjoying holiday attractions in Chicago with my daughter.

But most of all - I experience it in my heart which fills with HOPE for each of you, and the entire Bounce Community.

With your support, Bounce creates hope for a better life despite the endless challenges that accompany chronic illness. Throughout the year, Bounce builds resiliency for our 800+ members and fosters much needed HOPE.

This season, with help from our friends at AgencyEA,
Happy New Year Bounce Back Kits® will be delivered to
Bounce Families' doorsteps to provide an extra boost of HOPE.

I salute your commitment to transforming the lives of chronically ill kids, healthy siblings, and their overloaded parents. And I wish you HOPE that transcends all seasons -
