Family Day Out Program
Overcoming bad memories with good ones!
"This was the best day of my life!"
Those words are not taken lightly when spoken by a 10 year old boy battling stage 3 cancer. They were especially cherished by his family during a time when happy memories were hard to come by. The Family Day Out program was born out of those simple words of a 10 year old cancer patient who had the "best day of his life" because of the generosity of someone else.
Cancer is lonely disease. Due to low immunity and high risk of infection these children are kept isolated from school, social gatherings, birthday parties and other events they would normally attend.
Museums, movie theaters, public pools, are of prohibited to these children for often extended periods of time. These children spends days, weeks, and even months in the hospital only to be discharged and further confined at home.
That is why these family outings are so special and they are only possible because of the generosity of our corporate sponsors and individuals who care enough to help and donate to our family day out program.
CBC has partnered with the Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line, Miami Seaquarium, Fish to Make a Difference, Muvico Theaters Hialeah, the Florida Panthers, Freedom Waters and other local corporations and partners to provide special outings for our families. If during the worst time in their life we can provide the best day of their life, then we know we have done our job!
