Preview Night Partner

The Sandbox is an intimate, unorthodox team of compassionate families, team members, and volunteers that blend tailored support, programs, unforgettable events, and a bit of unexpected love so families whose children are facing cancer or any other life-altering, rare, or terminal illness never walk alone. Their two major focus areas to help families are their Continuum of Care model, called the CARRE Program, and annual events, such as our Weekend Of Believing. The Sandbox’s goal is to help Honorees and their families during the most tumultuous times of their lives so they can focus on the most important factors: Believing and Healing.


Sandbox meets families' needsSince the inception of The Sandbox in 2011, they have served over 5,750 families. In this time, The Sandbox mission has remained steadfast in serving families whose child has cancer or another life-altering, rare, or terminal illness through their CARRE program. The CARRE program is the umbrella to which all support is offered. CARRE stands for Caring About Real Relationships Empathetically. Because support can mean very different things to different people, The Sandbox strives to meet the social, emotional, and material needs of the entire family, not just the Honoree.  The Sandbox is committed to walking alongside families who face the realities of having a child with a serious diagnosis. This can mean helping with basic needs, arranging special days to get a break from the rigors of their treatment, or even assisting with the emotional transition in the grief and bereavement process.  Basically, The Sandbox helps the entire family when they need it, where they need it, and how they need it, for as long as they need it.
