It has been proven that music & games bring comfort & distraction when children suffering from life threatening rare diseases are undergoing scary & painful treatments. Nurses, doctors and care givers have witnessed this welcome distraction resulting in less sedation, less anxiety & better treatment results. What you will learn about Rylie’s Smile Foundation is that we will gift children battling for their lives an iPod Touch. They will be able to listen to favorite music, play games, take video & pictures, and text family (with iPhones). Our foundation feels that this is important in not only comforting children but in keeping them in contact with family. There are so many positives that one paragraph cannot list them all but it all comes down to…these children deserve to be able to take their mind elsewhere when things get scary or painful!!
Our main goal, to gift children battling severe life threatening diseases and disorders their own iPod Touches so that they may have as much comfort and joy as possible during their treatments and hospital stays. To read an excellent article and learn more about Rylie - Cape Gazette Article
