In response to COVID-19, we have implemented a new initiative to help families with chronic healthcare needs during this challenging time. We know that occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy are vital to these children and families. These weekly therapies improve and help sustain function for play and other daily activities through strengthening, conditioning and coordination. These children are now unable to go to their therapy clinics to partake in the necessary therapy to help them thrive. We will be partnering with CHOC and local therapy clinics to identify families who are struggling to meet their child’s need through teletherapy. The Live Like Jojo foundation is gifting these families up to $500 of therapy equipment to enable their child/children to participate in the most effective therapy during these unprecedented times.
There is no better way to honor our hero Jojo than to give hope and joy to these families.
