What We Do: Program overview
We provide C.A.R.E. To PATIENTS, SIBLINGS AND CAREGIVERS -- AS WELL AS CINCINNATI CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL
The Dragonfly Foundation provides distractions from the psychological, emotional, physical and financial toll of cancer and blood diseases. We also work to establish connections at a time when patients, siblings and caregivers feel the most alone and isolated. Through our efforts, numerous Dragonflies have been distracted from the physical and emotional pain of treatment, as well as the post-traumatic stress associated with the diagnosis of a serious illness. Our services fall into three main areas:
The Dragonfly Foundation’s in-kind donations and sponsor funds are invested in providing support to "our" Dragonfly families, both in and out of the hospital. This support comes in the form of Caring, Community and Awareness that Results in Emotional Health.
As an independent foundation, we rely on donations of time, talent, resources and connections to achieve and sustain our mission.

What OUR Dragonflies Say:
"The Dragonfly Foundation is a light in a dark place. You allowed B to feel joy and happiness during a time of pain and sadness."
"The Dragonfly Foundation came into our lives at a point where we were LOW. You lifted our spirits and helped us forget about the battle J and the whole family had been battling for what felt like an eternity. We are still talking about the wonderful gifts you gave us and we will NEVER forget your kindness. WE LOVE THE DRAGONFLY FOUNDATION!!!!!!!!!"
"TDF gives kids an identity! My daughter likes to say "I'm a Dragonfly". After a hard day this is motivating! We belong and are part of something. Something amazing! Thanks, TDF!"
