Pediatric Brain Tumor Program
Orlando Health Arnold Palmer Hospital
The Pediatric Brain Tumor Program is a comprehensive team dedicated to the care of children, teenagers and young adults diagnosed with brain and spinal cord tumors. Led by Pediatric Neuro-Oncologist, or "brain tumor specialist" Dr. Amy Smith, the team provides the full range of medical and emotional support specific to pediatric brain tumor patients during and after treatment. They provide care and treatment in an environment that allows families to be involved in all aspects of their child's care. Our mission is to provide children and young adults diagnosed with brain & spinal cord tumors the most effective treatment options available while aggressively protecting their quality of life.

Now I Play Along Too is a not for profit foundation (based in Virginia) that focuses on improving the lives of disadvantaged kids through the gift of music. Inspired by the gift of an anonymous person, the alternative rock band MELODME started the foundation to continue the story and provide opportunities to others that otherwise wouldn’t have been able to afford them.
The foundation accomplishes this by providing music instruments, instruction, and encouragement to regularly practice and perform music. The rigorous process of learning, practicing, and performing a musical instrument has a dual purpose to build character and discipline to help overcome obstacles.
A place to play. A place to feel safe. A place to giggle. A place to escape. A place to share. Mere words can't describe Camp Sunshine, because it's more than a place. It's more than a camp. It's more than a house. It's a program that offers an infusion of love, support, fun, acceptance and hope for children with cancer, and it's in full swing all year long. Camp Sunshine is a celebration of life that helps renew the spirit of young children with cancer and their families. The children and families who attend Camp Sunshine programs realize they are not alone in their struggle with cancer.
