The Orchard Program was created to help soften the impact for children, or “Little Peaches”, who are currently undergoing treatments, undergoing procedures, or facing long hospital stays. Parents and/or Care Providers are urged to reach out so we can quickly provide a “pick me up” for an individual child. With their guidance, a special gift will be picked from The Enchanted Peach Orchard based on the “Little Peaches” interests to boost their spirit. Items like a video game, a favorite book, a stuffed animal, or hobby related items can offer a small, much needed reprieve for a child combating the stresses of their illness.
Children’s Wish is pleased to coordinate with pediatric doctors, nurses, Child Life Specialists, and Social Workers on behalf of their young patients. For more information or to find out about how the program works, please call us at (800) 323-9474 or email to [email protected].
Caleb Toe Print
Caleb is a 9-month-old baby who has been on Hospice since he was born, suffering from Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. For baby Caleb, this means the left side of the heart is underdeveloped, and he may not live until he is a year old. Mom asked for a toe print charm of her little boy, and Children’s Wish Foundation was happy to fulfill her request through our Just Because Program.
