What Is a Smile Pack?

A Smile Pack is a joy-filled welcome backpack delivered to newly diagnosed pediatric cancer patients at our partner hospitals. Filled with gifts to transform the inpatient hospital experience, the Smile Pack contains items such as wireless speakers for music, wall decals for decoration, and easily transportable musical instruments like maracas and a harmonica. A gentle reminder to take advantage of moments to smile. Moments to sing. Moments to dance.

The Smile Pack also contains a personal note from co-founders Scott and Pammy Kramer – parents who spent many nights on the inpatient pediatric cancer floor. At a time when parents and patients are otherwise inundated with overwhelming medical concerns and questions, this special note serves as a bright light.
