Back To Top



The Casey Cares Foundation provides ongoing, uplifting programs with a special touch to critically ill children and their families in the Mid-Atlantic area. Casey Cares helps children with diseases like leukemia, sickle cell disease, cystic fibrosis, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses by customizing activities for their families. These activities are provided early in treatment and often-families can participate in activities from diagnosis, through treatment, and even one year beyond. Most families enjoy a Casey Cares activity six to eight times each year for four or five years before graduating from our programs. To date, Casey Cares has provided days of distraction and fun to over 26,000 program participants.
