Since 1993, KEYS has delivered just over 80,000 smiles!
  Profile: "In what seemed just a blink ago, I was in a hospital room helping my mother gently maneuver headphones on my father’s ears. My father’s journey with cancer was brief, and we knew he was nearing his time to leave us. We were just hoping music could help relax him, even just a little, and provide his body enough peace to be able to sleep after days of agitation and pain. Within an hour…he was asleep. As the nurses began asking what we had done to help calm and ease my father’s pain, we said, “We just played music.” That was the life-changing moment that has brought us here over 20 years later." -KEYS Founder, Colleen Bennett From that moment in November of 1993, the KEYS Program was born to help bring music, comfort, hope and smiles to kids going through the same difficult time, in memory of Colleen's father. Today, with the help of over 100 volunteers, the KEYS Program provides its award-winning patient support programs to children treated in 44 children's hospitals, special needs sites and hospice agencies across the US. Colleen has been recognized for her dedication to children receiving the Child Care Council of Cornell Cooperative Extensions Friend of Children Award, Who's Who Among American Women and the KEYS Program has been named one of the top 15 children's charities in the US by the Tony Stewart Foundation for the past 4 years.
  Featured Products or Services: Along with its outreach programming for pediatric cancer patients, KEYS also provides community music therapy services for children with various disabilities, music classes and workshops.

  Description: Though hope exists for all of us, sometimes it must be found through others. The mission of Maureen's Hope is to offer support and assistance to people facing the challenges of cancer and other life threatening illness. There are many needs that patients have when faced with a life altering disease that can not be met by the medical community and we hope to fulfill some of those needs. Maureen's Hope caters to the personal needs of individuals facing these challenges by providing gift baskets and services that offer comfort and strength as well as helping to improve their quality of life. Maureen's Hope Foundation has been able to provide over 400 baskets to cancer patients over the past five years. We have also provided patients with a cleaning service for their home; meals for the family; a wig and/or hats; complementary therapy such as reiki or massage; and assistance with fundraising events to help families with medical expenses. Maureen's Hope also helps to empower and encourage people facing an illness by offering a variety of programs that offer hope, inspiration and education to patients. Guest speakers for these programs include motivational speakers, health care providers and community representatives. Maureen's Hope is funded through grants, corporate donations and fundraising events.
  Profile: In 2010 the Foundation sponsored a new program at the Golisano Children’s Hospital called “Beads of Hope” which gives children battling cancer a tangible way to mark their treatments and progress with a colorful string of beads.
  Featured Products or Services: Visit our brand new Inspirational Jewlery Store to help support the Maureen's Hope Foundation Secure Inspirational Jewelry Store. The story behind our bracelets have made them a meaningful gift to share with someone special and all proceeds benefit Maureen's Hope Foundation. While my sister Maureen was battling cancer she wore a fun and inspirational bracelet from Chicos throughout her journey. While she was wearing a less than flattering hospital gown her bracelet became a symbol of normalcy and represented the fun spirited person she was. May you get the same joy from your bracelet and let it bring out your Live, Love, Laugh attitude! Enjoy!
