Ethan & Choco's Book Club

Striving to make access to books and reading a core part of the care that SuperKids receive in the hospital, with the principal premise that literacy support for children fighting cancer and other life-threatening conditions can help promote cognitive development and social connections that are part of thriving through treatment and beyond

Book Bag Delivery Day at CHOC Children’s Hospital

This morning we re-stocked the hospital’s inventory of ECBC’s Read Think Thrive Bags, which are book bags that are given to every toddler, child, and teen/young adult who is diagnosed with cancer at CHOC. These bags are stocked with ten new book books curated by the age and gender of the recipient, as well as art and literary crafting supplies, a letter and “Thrive Challenge” from Ethan, and other literacy support items (bookmark, reading light, Parent Pamphlet for supporting literacy through treatment). Valued at $150 a bag, sustaining this program is a mighty task for ECBC, especially given the current cancer diagnosis rate of 10-15 new cases per month. We so appreciate our donors who have allowed us provide these bags to help oncology warriors to thrive through treatment with easy access to high-quality books!
