Better Day Buddies
The Better Day Buddies program began in February, 2008 at the Golisano Children's Hospital at Strong. Although similar to the Cancer Wellness Connections program for adults, Better Day Buddies focuses more on crafts, books, small games, and hearty snacks. The fun activities provide diversions for children ages 2-20 who are undergoing chemotherapy in the outpatient treatment room. Better Day Buddies provides services 5-days a week, with 2-volunteers a day for children and their families.
