Mission: Hopecam, a 501(c)3 organization, helps pediatric cancer patients overcome social isolation by virtually connecting them with their teachers and classmates-whether it’s for a pre-K playdate or a high school-level class. By working with hospitals, social workers, families, and schools, Hopecam makes it easy for a child with cancer to stay connected by providing-at no cost to families-the necessary technology and Internet access.

Hopecam connects children undergoing treatment for cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses, with their friends, family members, and classmates using tablets and web cameras.
Among the first side-effects a child experiences after diagnosis of cancer or other life-threatening diseases is being cut off from their friends and school. Hopecam uses technology to help children overcome this social isolation. We work with the schools to educate them as to the importance of connecting with these children, providing information, IT support and hardware as needed. We program and give the children tablet computers equipped with webcams so they can connect with their friends and family.
