For the second year, CureSearch is honored to partner with Mattel to celebrate children with cancer through meaningful play. Mattel will once again produce Ella, friend of Barbie, to provide children with cancer a Barbie doll that is just like them. CureSearch is excited to work with hospitals across the country to host Ella Parties and give kids an opportunity to engage in meaningful play this September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
“CureSearch is honored to be partnering with Mattel to ensure children across the country are able to have Ella, friend of Barbie,” says Kelli Wright, National Director of Strategic Partnerships. “Losing your hair at any age is hard; having a doll that looks just like them is invaluable to children during their cancer journey.”
