On June 28th, 2011 an Adopt a Pig volunteer delivered the first Coping Kit to a family whose child was recently diagnosed with cancer. They also delivered six more that day to kick off a bittersweet mission.

  • iPads and iTunes gift cards to help kids and families stay connected & to entertain during countless hours spent in treatment.
  • Gas cards to help with travel costs associated with frequent visits to the hospital.
  • Cafeteria gift card to help offset food costs during hospital stays.
  • Visa gift card to help with incidentals.
  • Calendars to track appointments, follow-ups, and medications.
  • Lint brush, mints, soft blanket, soft pillow for personal comfort during treatment.
  • Thermometer, pill cutter, sunscreen, hand sanitizer, first aid kit, pill glide, soft tissues for medical care at home.
  • Baseball hat, socks, toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner for personal care and comfort.

The total cost of each Coping Kit is $1,500. Since the launch of the Coping Kit program in June, 2011, every family at DuPont Hospital for Children has received a Coping Kit within one week of their child’s pediatric cancer diagnosis.
