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 Sydney

Sydney is a sweet 7-year-old girl who loves being a big sister to her brother Jack and enjoys spending time outdoors and animals. She loves animals so much she is known to read encyclopedias about them! Last spring, Sydney’s parents, Lyndsey and Adam, noticed that their daughter started tiring easily and had stopped enjoying their usual family activities, like hiking. On Easter morning, Sydney collapsed with exhaustion and a trip to the emergency room was warranted. Based upon the results of her blood tests, she was immediately admitted into Boston Children’s Hospital and diagnosed with High-Risk B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (Blood Cancer). Sydney would spend the next two months in the hospital until she was strong enough to receive outpatient cancer treatment at Dana Farber.

 

Today Sydney is receiving chemotherapy as she continues with her 2½ year cancer protocol. Sydney’s Grahamtastic iPad, along with our donated high-speed internet access, allows her to learn more about animals online and play her favorite games like “Crayola Scribble Scrubbie Pets”. Sydney’s mother Lyndsey, who has become a very strong pediatric cancer advocate, states “We were beyond grateful, for when the moments hit where Sydney did not feel good, she was given the opportunity to go to her bedroom and still watch a movie, or play her games with the gift provided by Grahamtastic!”

 

To learn more about Sydney, their family friend Abigail Galas wrote and illustrated a delightful children’s book titled, “The Adventures of Sydney and Jack”. All book sales support childhood cancer.
