WHO WE ARE
Small Miracles is a collection of people dedicated to improving the quality of life for patients going through cancer treatment. After Jordyn Small, the founder of Small Miracles, experienced the hardships of cancer treatment herself, she, along with her team, vowed to improve that experience for anyone else. Following its establishment in 2019, Small Miracles has made great strides in completing its mission. So far, in its short history, Small Miracles has raised over $80,000 worth of gifts that have put smiles on the faces of patients ranging from infants to teenagers.
Small Miracles is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to positively enhancing the lives of pediatric oncology patients through gift programs and special experiences.
HOW WE GOT STARTED
Jordyn Small has endured a lot in her seventeen years. After enduring three surgeries and fifteen months of chemotherapy treatment, Jordyn knows first-hand how cancer-treatment affects someone. During her time at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Jordyn noticed that the teenagers and babies were often overlooked. For example, at various holidays when gifts were handed out, these two groups received gifts that did not appeal to their age category. Additionally, in the hospital, the shows that were playing were often geared toward younger kids or toddlers. While appreciative, it almost felt as if the two groups were not validated for the pain that they endured each week. Once Christmas came around in 2019, Jordyn sought out to provide gifts that were suitable for babies, toddlers, tweens and teens. Her goal was to create gifts that each age group could enjoy so that their time at the hospital could improve.
