TVF Kids Braving Quarantine

Posted by The Valerie Fund on 4/13/20 8:00 AM

We are all at home during this COVID-19 self-isolation and social distancing, right? Valerie Fund families often know what it's like to quarantine during treatment so they get creative when the days start getting a bit long and you feel you've watched everything there is on Netflix. We put a call out to see how some of our kids and families are weathering this storm and got some incredible examples of ingenuity. 

Be sure to follow us on Instagram and Facebook to be up to date on the goings-on of not only The Valerie Fund but our kids and families too!

It's not just kids getting creative in spending their time at home these days.

The Valerie Fund's Office & Database Manager, Aimee Kowalak, took to her front yard with her kids to #ChalkTheWalk in an effort to bring some color and spring happiness to the world. 


The staff of The Valerie Fund also collaborated on a playlist of songs that are helping them get through this time. You can check out the full details by clicking here and reading their stories. 


Our Executive Director, Barry Kirschner, being the music aficionado that he is, created his own playlist of his favorite Blues-inspired classic rock. He paints great pictures of both world famous concerts and hole-in-the-wall shows he has attended over the years. Click here to read the full story.
