Shine On! Kids, Fall 2016 Tokyo Charity Events

3. Shine On! Kids –  October 1st, 2016 – Cool Japan ExtravaganzaThis year Shine On! Kids invites you to Cool Japan Extravaganza on  Saturday, October 1st, 2016.  Please join for an exciting evening of celebrating our COOL Kids and our 10th year of helping them. What does “Cool Japan” mean to you? Manga, fashion, electronics, J-cuisine? Japanese art, industry, culture? We see it as a place where kids like ours are empowered to flourish and participate in society. Let’s explore these ideas together!

ShineOn! Kids dedicated to making life better for kids with cancer and other serious illnesses in Japan and their families. Shine On! Kids (formerly The Tyler Foundation) was incorporated as a Non-Profit Organization under the laws of Japan in July 2006 and has been supported entirely by private and corporate donations. The creation of the organization was inspired by the smiles and courage of Mark and Kim Ferris’ son Tyler, who spent much of his short life battling a very difficult-to-cure kind of leukemia. After they lost Tyler, they realized there were many ways to take Tyler’s struggles and their experience and create something positive for families going through what they had endured. While the level of medical treatment in Japan is one of the best in the world, the area of patient support is still relatively undeveloped. The organization hopes to redefine the concept of patient support in Japan to create a complete patient support system: from the moment of diagnosis, throughout treatment and even after discharge from the hospital.
