Spread a Smile brings joy and laughter to seriously and terminally ill children and their families during intensive treatment and extended hospital stays.  Every year we spread smiles to thousands of hospitalised children and teenagers and their families through our hospital visits, outings & events & art initiatives.  We know that our impact is far greater than a smile as we strive to make a real and positive difference to young lives at the most challenging of times.
