World of Hope


Take a minute and ask yourself “how do I cope with really bad news or tough times?”

As adults, we might talk to our friends, go on a shopping spree, eat more than we should or even run away from it completely.

But kids are different…

Kids with cancer in “The World of Hope” – Pediatric cancer care at Dayton Children’s Hospital Published on Nov 27, 2012

Some very special children at Dayton Children’s give us a special glimpse into the world of a child fighting cancer and how imagination and joy help them  through their treatments. As they take you on a journey through their “World of Hope”, these courageous fighters show us the importance of imagination, play, joy and hope for children–even more so in the face of fighting scary things like cancer. In their World of Hope, you will see courageous kids magically transform into cowboys chasing bandits, princesses with spell potions and astronauts heading into space for healing.

“When kids hear bad news like “you have cancer,” they often cope with positive attitudes and vivid imaginations that help them to deal with all the scary stuff. In fact, many times kids are even stronger than us grownups and here at Dayton Children’s, these little heroes are everywhere.

Every year at Dayton Children’s, we see kids facing the scariest of diagnoses – cancer. And yet every year we see them battle against it in the most inspiring ways.

They fight it with amazing courage and strength because these little heroes live in the “World of Hope.”

So today in this season of giving, come with us to this magical place where you will meet these amazing heroes from our community”- Dayton Children’s. 

Thank you to these very courageous kids and the staff at Dayton Children’s for your beautiful video and for inviting us into your “World of Hope”.
