About Us

Mission

 

Bounce Children’s Foundation transforms the lives of chronically ill children, and their families, shifting all from surviving to thriving.

Vision

 

We envision the day when every chronically ill child and their family in America is supported by Bounce Children’s Foundation.

Values

  • All kids deserve to be just kids.
  • Happier leads to healthier.
  • When Bounce children are diagnosed, the entire family is diagnosed.
  • No child should lose their childhood to the medical system.
  • A child’s work is play.
  • Connecting is the core of our human experience.
  • Kids are the future, invest in them accordingly.
  • Building resilience today creates a lifetime of value.
  • A helping hand, not a hand out.
  • An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
