Transforming the lives of chronically ill children, and their families,
shifting all from surviving to thriving -- until cures are found. 
For the last two consecutive quarters, the number of Bounce Kiddos has grown by 15%. Earlier this month, we broke the 200 mark and have not looked back, already at 228. Outreach efforts through both the healthcare system and the Bounce community are clearly paying off.

Serving more members than ever, requires more program capacity than ever: bigger events, longer supply lists, more partners, and lots of volunteers - what a fabulous and fun challenge!

Bounce will continue to invest in capacity building until all kids and families who need Bounce, are served by Bounce. With nearly one in five U.S. children battling a chronic illness, that a tall order. But with your help, there will be many months ahead that will "a-May-ze" just like this month!
