The Alicia Rose Victorious Foundation (ARVF) is a non-profit, tax exempt charitable organization. ARVF provides activities, programs and events that enhance the quality of life for teens with cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. Since its inception, ARVF has successfully partnered with 98 children’s hospitals in 37 states throughout the country, funding 60 Teen Lounges and providing over 11,000 Teen Kits to critically-ill children.
ARVF created a “Totally 4 Teens” Activity Journal to include in our Teen Kits to send to hospitalized teens, but we need the funds to revamp and publish them! Visit our Indiegogo Campaign by clicking HERE to see how you can show your support!
ARVF works on a national level to bring hope, comfort, and happiness to hospitalized teens. To do this ARVF provides the Victorious-4-Teens Programs:
ARVF funds Teen Lounges in children’s hospitals designed to enhance the quality of life for adolescents undergoing in-patient treatment. A Teen Lounge is a special place designed to help patients take a welcome break from their treatment and a way to meet others their age. Teen Lounges include board games, computers, big screen TV’s, pool tables, gaming systems, age-appropriate furnishings and much more.
ARVF funds special social events such as: Bingo Nights, Teen Proms, Pizza Parties and other creative in-hospital activities for teens. These activities help encourage patients to escape the isolation of their patient rooms and gives hospitalized adolescents the ability to socialize with other teen patients that are dealing with the same struggles.
Teen Kits are a unique amenity provided to any adolescent (ages 13 & up) who is hospitalized for any critical & life-threatening condition. The cinch bags are filled with over 12 items to entertain their in-patient stay. The kit also includes a comfortable and fun Bandana Pillow for their bed and for them to take home as well.
