In the "World of Hope" , kids aren't fighting cancer - they imagine themselves as a cowboy fighting bandits and a knight slaying the dragon. They aren't taking chemotherapy or having an MRI - they are a princess with a magic potion and an astronaut going into the healing space.

Take a minute and ask yourself "how do I cope with really bad news or tough times?"

As adults, we might talk to our friends, go on a shopping spree, eat more than we should or even run away from it completely.

But kids are different...

When kids hear bad news like "you have cancer," they often cope with positive attitudes and vivid imaginations that help them to deal with all the scary stuff. In fact, many times kids are even stronger than us grownups and here at Dayton Children's, these little heroes are everywhere.

Every year at Dayton Children's, we see kids facing the scariest of diagnoses - cancer. And yet every year we see them battle against it in the most inspiring ways.

They fight it with amazing courage and strength because these little heroes live in the "World of Hope."

So today in this season of giving, come with us to this magical place where you will meet these amazing heroes from our community[GR1] .

In their World of Hope, these kids aren't fighting cancer - they imagine themselves as a cowboy fighting bandits and a knight slaying the dragon. They aren't taking chemotherapy or having an MRI - they are a princess with a magic potion and an astronaut going into the healing space.

Today, November 27, is #GivingTuesday. Why not add these little heroes to your holiday shopping list as part of your season of giving!
