BECAUSE Cancer Wasn't Cancelled

PJ Day for the Kids

December 11, 2020—And All Year Round!

Cancer wasn’t cancelled during the pandemic, so PJ Day for the Kids won’t be either. As long as children are battling cancer and our expert staff are treating them, the Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders needs your support. Whether we wear our PJs in-person or virtually, we can still all stand together with kids battling cancer and blood disorders.

PJ Day for the Kids is an opportunity for students and business partners across the state to show support for patients at Connecticut Children’s. Over the last 9 years, hundreds of thousands of participants have worn PJ’s in honor of children at the hospital who must wear their PJ’s for extended periods of time while fighting cancer or other serious illnesses.

Since 2011, more than $1 Million Dollars has been raised for the Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. Together, $1 at a time, we are making a difference!

Your collective statewide support has made a tremendous impact. From new, safer, life-saving treatments and individual, targeted, genetic therapies to financial and emotional support for the entire family, your donations to PJ Day for the Kids are making a difference for Connecticut Children's patients.

Thank you for raising funds, awareness and hope for these brave kids!
