Our Mission
Helping hospitalized children feel “over the moon” with essential childhood  activities.

Mary “Moon” Jacqueline O’Keefe died at the age of 3 on July 30th, 2009 after a yearlong battle with neuroblastoma, a cancer that is most common in infancy. Mary loved the attention and activities Child Family Life Services provided her at the University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital, this allowed her to be distracted during painful treatments and to be engaged in learning activities while in the hospital.

Please visit Our Foundation to learn more about Mary and her parents’ goals with our new foundation.
