National trips are week-long trips provided throughout the year for teenage cancer patients from hospitals across the United States and Canada. National trips are hosted in exciting destinations throughout the United States where teenage cancer patients have the opportunity to participate in once-in-a-lifetime opportunities while meeting other kids, their same age, also battling a childhood cancer diagnosis. Sunshine Kids are chaperoned by medical volunteers from participating hospitals and Foundation staff.
