We raised $10,000 to help critically ill children and their families!
The Casey Cares Foundation provides ongoing, uplifting programs with a special touch to critically ill children and their families. Casey Cares’ customized programs give families ongoing opportunities to create positive family memories. For families whose faith, relationships, and pocketbooks have been stretched to their breaking points, these programs may be the only break many have from hospital stays and doctors’ visits.
