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!
