SunningHillJill Kids was inspired by a caring neighborhood and a heartfelt gift of an iPad to Jill's 15 year old son who had just undergone his second major operation for a rare form of kidney cancer. She will never forget his words that day when he received his iPad while recovering and during a time when their family was coming to terms with this completely ‘out of the blue’ diagnosis. His exact words were, “This is the best day of my life!” 

An iPad can provide connection and entertainment, while also showing love and compassion to a child and their family undergoing long treatments and recovery times.

SunningHillJill Kids was created to provide as many 'BEST DAYS OF THEIR LIVES' as possible for kids undergoing treatment for cancer or a chronic blood disease through Jill’s passion of sharing easy peasy ways to provide delicious nourishing food to family and friends.  

Our mission, in partnership with our community, is to Eat, Drink, Give Thanks and Provide Special Gifts to Children Diagnosed with Cancer or a Chronic Blood Disease. Join us and connect with a child and family forever through your kindness!
