Transforming the lives of chronically ill children, and their families,
shifting all from surviving to thriving -- until cures are found. 
Time is one of our most valuable, and precious, resources.

Whether running between meetings or spending time with my daughter, there never seems to be enough time. That’s one reason volunteers are extraordinary .

Giving their time, volunteers are change makers . And their passion for Bounce's makes them our best ambassadors.

Volunteers are also inspirational . The intelligence and energy of the Board of Directors and Emerging Leaders Board motivates me to push the boundaries and capabilities of our organization.
And, volunteers represent good . Their compassion, dependability, and empathy makes a huge difference to the Bounce Families we serve. Bounce is thriving because of their dedication.

Bounce volunteers make an incredible difference in my life, and more importantly, in the lives of our 900+ members. In honor of National Volunteer Appreciation Week , please join me in applauding them!

Bounce Academy completes the portfolio of programs that provide members with a robust set of services. Designed to work together, Bounce programs transform lives, because there is no 'magic wand' for navigating the challenges of a child's illness.

These educational workshops provide strength training for emotional, intellectual, psychological, & financial coping skills and build the ability to 'bounce'.

Bounce Families are invited to join us on Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 1 PM - 3 PM at Hyatt Regency O'Hare for fun, friendship, & learning at the first workshop!
