Mikey’s Way Foundation received its vision from our founder, Michael “Mikey” Friedman—a way to help connect and enrich the lives of children suffering with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

Our “Mikey’s Way Connection Cart” circles the pediatric floors of the hospitals we serve, giving away all forms of electronics that permit the child to create their own diversion and thus allow for the Mind-Body connection.
