Medical Missions for Children and the Boomer Esiason Foundation (BEF) have partnered to form “Team WOW.” Our mission as managing partners will be to assemble a group of founding and advisory partners to address the problem of young children who do not understand the disease they are afflicted with.
The objective is to build a video library aimed at afflicted children and their parents that use the tools already proven successful such as animation and puppets with a “Sesame Street” feel to explain the illness to the child. For the parents a “Part B” video will prepare them to answer the anticipated questions a child may have after viewing the program. The goal is to eventually cover the full spectrum of pediatric diseases.
It is rare for charities to work together so we hope our venture with the Boomer Esiason Foundation will be an example for others.
