15,280 children will be diagnosed with cancer this year. Nearly every one of these children will have to be isolated from their friends and unable to attend school as a result of their treatment. Today, thanks to technology, this isolation can be overcome by giving the child a tablet computer and persuading schools to establish a connection with the hospitalized and homebound child. Hopecam is the only charity in the United States providing these services to children with cancer. It's no wonder that in 2016, Hopecam was asked to help six-times the number of children as the year before. 2017 will be no different and we are well on our way to helping 700 children, if not more, before year's end. 

We need your help! It costs about $1,000 to connect each child. About 50% of the children live in homes unable to afford Internet, which Hopecam provides at a cost of $500 per year. 70% of the children attend schools eligible for Title 1 (low income) financing.
