Connecting Kids
When Their World 
Is Out of Reach

Our mission is to provide free technology to children with cancer and other serious illnesses to support their education, as well as their social and emotional well-being. Technology, including iPads, laptops, robots and Internet access, enables our children to continue their education during treatment while also remaining connected to family, friends and medical providers. We currently support children in the US ages 3-18 giving first priority to children in the Northeast.

MEET SUPERSTAR REECE

When Reese was eight she was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. After 13 months of chemo, 29 sessions of radiation and almost 20 surgeries on her upper arm, we are happy to report Reese is doing very well. While Reese was too ill to attend school and was feeling isolated, Grahamtastic provided her an iPad and placed a tele-presence robot in her school, which she affectionately named R2Reese2. The robot helped her enjoy her favorite subjects, art, music and writing. She also enjoyed researching facts about animals than making presentations about what she has learned, especially wolves. Reese enjoys art and loves to paint and sketch. She often brings works of art to share with her doctors and nurses at the hospital.

 

Reese is very moved to give back to the cancer community and has done so in so many ways. Whether it’s public speaking to over 1000 people, holding a toy drive or helping cancer organizations fundraise, her beautiful smile is always there to help others. Reese’s mother Lynne states, “Having R2Reese2 gave her the opportunity to participate in her normal life again and it was amazing to see the transformation this made in her. She looked forward to logging in and participating in lessons, and was able to go to lunch with her friends at school while she was still in hospital.
