Jane Lopoten School of Dance: Dance-a-thon, November 6th from 1-3pm.
Our studio has been raising money for various charities for over 40 years. We are so excited about our new partnership with Children’s Hospital for this years dance-a-thon. Your support of our event will directly impact local families receiving care at CHOP. The money we raise from our Dance-a-thon will go to support two very important programs:
THE CHILD LIFE PROGRAM: which offers support for children before, during and after medical procedures by providing the following:
*Art, Dance, and music therapy that helps patients process emotions.
*Special techniques that help children cope with anxiety- and that can reduce or eliminate the need for anesthesia during certain procedures.
*A multimedia studio that hosts special activities and creates programs for an in-room TV channel
*Opportunities for patients and siblings to learn about the hospital and their diagnosis and become familiar with medical procedures and terms.
Since the services provided in the child life program are not covered by insurance, philanthropy is vital to this department.
INTEGRATIVE HEALTH ONCOLOGY: At CHOP they recognize that every child with cancer has unique physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs: That’s where integrative oncology comes in. The Integrative Oncology Program at CHOP offers supportive, noninvasive therapies proven to help children with common physical and emotional side effects of cancer and its treatment. Therapies and programs include: *Acupuncture, *Aromatherapy, *Family Education, *Massage therapy, *Nutrition and culinary medicine, *Physical therapy, *Physiological support, *Sports medicine, *Yoga
Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to support CHOP. Together we can improve outcomes for even more children who are diagnosed with cancer.
