"It is the goal of the Mikey’s Way Foundation to be able to connect every hospitalized child with their friends, family and school, enabling them to cope with the separation during long-term treatment for cancer and other life threatening illnesses.

We ensure this connection through the use of the Internet (Skype) and our ability to supply every child with a laptop computer, netbook or similar electronic device. In creating this connection we are in turn presenting the child with a form of diversion. This diversion helps create the Mind-Body Connection and a way for them to escape…Mikey’s Way."
