We provide NEW & COLORFUL bedsheets for pediatric oncology patients. These kids spend weeks and sometime months confined to their white hospital bed while undergoing painful treatments. Let's put a smile to their face and make them feel more like at home!

Thousands of children are battling cancer in our hospitals every day. On a cruel and shocking night in early 2010 my young son became one of those kids, and he spent the next 18 months fighting a courageous and difficult battle beating cancer. He is an amazing son, brother and friend, and is our inspiration for “Sheets from Home”. Please join us in brightening a child’s face one hospital stay and one kid at a time.

With each round of chemo, immunotherapy, or transplant, our son would spend many, many nights confined to his hospital bed. We brought lots of love, we brought courage and hope, and we even brought in toys; these were all important weapons in our fight. We also brought sheets from home, and this did unexpected and amazing things.

On the first night of his chemo at the hospital, we ripped off the white “patient” hospital sheets, and replaced them with sheets from home. He always had a fun and colorful bed with his friends SpongeBob, Spiderman or Darth Vader. We thought this was just a small gesture but over the course of treatments, a nurse, another kid or a Mom would stand outside our hospital room and marvel at how the sheets brought life to the room. We were amazed at the positive impact and the smiles. And while it did not make the pain go away, his hospital bed which was his new home, could feel more like his real home. Each kid deserves this same feeling and we will make it happen with your help.

Donations collected during the months of September will be translated into smiles and will be delivered in a form of colorful bedsheets to kids fighting cancer at hospitals in the mid-west.
