The R&W is dedicated to raising money for three very special NIH charities: Friends of Patients at the NIH, The Children’s Inn and Special Love/Camp Fantastic. These three wonderful organizations are instrumental in providing much needed support for young patients and their families. These support networks are made up of other patients and families who know and understand the trials and triumphs of fighting long-term and life-threatening illnesses. We would like to encourage members to join us in supporting these organizations which we feel are so deserving of respect and support. To make a blanket donation, please send a check to: R&W Foundation 9000 Rockville Pike Bldg. 31 Rm. B1-W30 Bethesda, MD 20892.

 About the Charities:

Children’s Inn (CFC #10324) – The Children’s Inn at the National Institutes of Health is a residential “place like home” for sick children and their families. Children come from across the country and around the world to stay together with their families in The Inn’s healing environment while receiving groundbreaking medical treatments at the NIH, the world’s leading biomedical research center. While the NIH takes care of the child’s medical needs, The Inn tends to the child’s heart, soul and spirit.

Special Love (CFC #49642) – Special Love lets kids be kids, through camps, financial assistance, and a community of support that lets them (and their families) know that they’re not alone in their battle.

Friends of Patients at the NIH (CFC #85994) – Friends of Patients at the NIH (formerly Friends of the Clinical Center) provides financial assistance for patients participating in research protocols at the National Institutes of Health.  The Friends’ goal is to enhance the lives of Clinical Center patients and their family members by relieving them of emergency financial burdens related to their participation in clinical trials.
