“Children fighting for their lives, should not have to fight for their dignity.”
Every child battling cancer deserves a sense of comfort and control
Emilio’s Loving Tabs™ are specially designed to facilitate access to medical devices without requiring a scared child to remove their garment. The cotton-blend is breathable, soft and warm against tender skin. ENF designed the shirt to easily open with tabs on the shoulder, enabling medical providers to access the permanent catheter port positioned in the child’s chest to receive chemotherapy treatment, take blood samples and other procedures.
For children, lifting or removing their shirts several times a day for required procedures creates unnecessary stress and fear. Emilio’s Loving Tabs™ shirts enable a sense of “normalcy” and comfort when children are receiving grueling chemotherapy.
We hope you will support this important program as a sponsor! Emilio’s Loving Tabs™ shirts are just $30 each, and will be gifted to children fighting cancer at Children’s Hospitals all over the country.
“These t-shirts have provided such thoughtful comfort to our patients, and have lightened the burden on parents seeking to calm their children at a very stressful time. It is also a wonderful resource for our caregivers, who provide the most compassionate care possible. This type of tangible philanthropy is often the most practical support our patients receive. We have found the Foundation’s creative solution this unique challenge to be truly remarkable.”

In partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, ENF conducted a 2-year study to test shirt design, satisfaction and usefulness with these positive results:
