It is through these funds, privately raised, that the patient/students enjoy a variety of recreational and therapeutic activities as well as community experiences that would otherwise not be available to them. In other words, while the state ensures that their medical and educational needs are met in a safe, healthy environment, these donations provides the children with the tools and experiences they need to thrive and fully realize their potential as individuals.
