What are Bounce Back Kits?
When doctor’s order and/or medical necessity cause ‘shut-in,’ boredom, frustration and anxiety quickly set in for all. Children battling chronic illness face repeated rounds of lengthy stays at home such as before surgery, after treatment, during flare-ups, etc. To break the monotony of being “locked-in” and combat cabin fever, kits are themed, often for holidays, and contain fun-filled, spirit-boosting activities.
