A New Decade of Hope
Our patient heroes are featured throughout the film, which showcases the services of Stony Brook University Medical Center's Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Program. Supplemental services that were implemented to answer a need or improve the quality of life for the pediatric patient are explained in detail. These programs are supported by the Sunrise Fund, launched in 1999, as a grassroots effort by parents determined to improve childhood cancer survival. This wide range of support includes a School Re-Entry Program, which assists in the child's return to school; a "Rising Stars" Talent Show and Art Exhibit; Play Fit-Stay Fit!, a comprehensive wellness program; Our Little Heroes, a parent support network; the Daniel Brooks Memorial Educational Award for Students with Cancer; Play It Forward, a social support program by student-athletes; and a "Living in Love" Palliative Care and Bereavement Group.
