The Treasure Chest program allows cancer patients (ranging in
age from birth through 18 years) at 45 children's
cancer treatment centers to choose an age appropriate toy as a
reward for having the courage to undergo painful but necessary
procedures. Smaller toys are stored in a Treasure Chest and
designated for children undergoing simple procedures like blood
tests. Larger, more expensive gifts are stored in a cabinet and
designated for those children experiencing extensive, painful
procedures such as spinal taps and bone marrow aspirations.
Currently, the Treasure Chest program comforts over 8600
children and teens each month.
PAWS is people helping animals. We are the kind of people who delight in the company of an animal friend, who are awed by a majestic eagle in flight. Like you, we understand that animals enrich our lives. We also know they cannot speak for themselves and need protection. That is why PAWS brings together people like you to ensure animals are respected, safe and have a voice.
At Autism Speaks, our goal is to change the future for all who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. We are dedicated to funding global biomedical research into the
causes, prevention, treatments, and cure for autism; to raising public
awareness about autism and its effects on individuals, families, and
society; and to bringing hope to all who deal with the hardships of this
disorder. We are committed to raising the funds necessary to support
these goals. Autism Speaks aims to bring the autism community together as one
strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our
concerns and take action to address this urgent global health crisis. It
is our firm belief that, working together, we will find the missing
pieces of the puzzle.
Autism Speaks. It's time to listen.
