ABOUT THE PICCOLINA FOUNDATION

Recognizing the need for pediatric cancer patients to have creative expression while undergoing intense medical treatments, The PICColina Foundation designed and provided, at no charge to the patient, attractive arm covers which effectively covered and helped protect PICC lines that these youngsters must have while undergoing chemotherapy treatments. We offered these deserving kids a way to "personalize" a very high-tech piece of medical equipment and make it over in their own "style". It seems a small thing, but these covers helped children to ‘normalize’ their exprordinary situation, if just a little. 

While the foundation was active, PICColina PICC Covers were offered to children who were undergoing chemotherapy treatment at Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital in Palo Alto, California. Our original aim was to grow in our effort to serve these children and other young patients at pediatric cancer treatment centers throughout the United States

Circumstances change, and the founders of The PICColina Foundation felt they were no longer able to effectively continue in their pursuit of the original goals for the organization.  While we are proud of what we achived in our time, and will forever remember the smiles we helped to put on the children we met, The PICColina Foundation has currently concluded its operations and dissolved its status as a non-profit organizaion. 

Many thanks to those who supported our early work. You made a personal difference in the lives of many young cancer patients.
