Transforming the lives of chronically ill children, and their families,
shifting all from surviving to thriving - until cures are found. 
When you think of March, I bet you think inklings of spring, St. Patrick's Day, and March Madness Basketball! I do too, but this year I am also thinking about two of our favorite Bounce partners.

March is also National Child Life Month. Child Life is an amazing profession. Dedicated to easing the trauma of hospitalization for pediatric patients, these allied health professionals, are also critical to Bounce's ability to transform lives. As our first line of introduction to chronically ill kids, and their families, they account for 44% of all Bounce referrals. Three cheers for Child Life!

And a 'shout out' to Chuy's for their support of sick kids! They have declared June Bounce into Chuy's month and will dedicate themselves to raising much needed funds for us each day. In addition, they are focusing the next 30 days on fundraising for St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

Should you find yourself in a hospital, thank a Child Life Professional. And, let's all head to Chuy's in Schaumburg for some delicious Tex-Mex (today - April 16th and June 1 - 30) and please let them know you're part of Bounce!

With thanks for all you - and all of our "Lucky Charms"!
