This year, you will have the opportunity to meet and hear from some of the parents whose children have been touched by Riprap Friends. Groundbreaking research illustrates that love, friendship, community, life’s purpose, and our environment can have a far greater impact on health and the course of disease. Riprap Friends meaningful connections with children and their families create needed space for positivity, focus, joy and purpose.
NAO Wellness is a tucked away oasis of wellness in NYC’s west village.
Stretch*d is New York’s premiere assisted stretching and recovery space. A professional Stretch*r does the stretching for you — moving your body through dynamic stretches to improve flexibility, mobility and reduce soreness.

The name “Riprap Friends” comes from the word for a stone wall used to armor shorelines against water erosion. We will provide a metaphorical armor for pediatric cancer patients and their families against some of the often overlooked erosive characteristics of that disease: social, creative, and emotional isolation that can be a severe impediment to full recovery.
We understand that a child’s wellbeing depends on a variety of important factors, and among those factors is the child’s ability to be creative, intellectually stimulated, socially engaged, to have the opportunity to make meaningful choices in his or her day-to-day life, and most importantly, to have the support of family and friends during their medical treatment. Riprap intends to facilitate all of these things in the name of bettering the overall health of childhood cancer patients.
