We Help You And Your Family Feel Better
Dear Parents/Guardians of Children With Complex Medical Conditions,
We invite you to apply for a customized gift package that is designed to promote relaxation and relieve stress. Together, we identify items (e.g. gift certificates to get basic needs covered, distraction toys, relaxation tools, etc.) that are appropriate and safe for you and your children. We also talk about additional resources available to you and help connect you to them. We are your partners, strengthening your "constellation of care" and promoting your self-care -- whether you're currently in the hospital with your child or at home.
Thank you and warm regards,
Eliana's Light's Team
Ps. You can apply in English, Spanish, Arabic, French, and Portuguese. We soon will be able to accept applications in Amharic. Eliana's Light reviews applications when we receive them.
