A Brief Overview
The BUDDY System, Bringing Understanding of Diagnosis and Disease to Youth, is a comprehensive pediatric education program and partner for pediatric patients with serious illness and their families.
The BUDDYs: Ava (Hispanic), Jackson (Caucasian), and Sam (Black) are paired with youth to deliver understanding combined with companionship and compassion throughout their health care journey. Our goal is to provide a friend, a constant—not just a means of distraction for these children.
Core components of this offering will be shared with the youth beginning at initial diagnosis, when they receive The BUDDY Pack introductory kit.
Puppet-based virtual education videos, shared via The BUDDY Portal, will aim to alleviate some anxieties of what is to come, while also educating on prognosis, wellness, and recovery.
Additional components will include the Caring for Your Superhero parent and caregiver resources and future support forums.
We believe the System has abundant possibilities for expansion within therapeutic areas and institutions.
