Hopecam helps children with cancer connect with their friends, their classrooms, and their support systems while they’re going through cancer treatment.
When Hopecam founder Len Forkas’ son Matt was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2003, one of the first side effects was that Matt could not go to school. At the toughest time in his life, Matt could not be with his friends and his friends could not be with him. With Logitech video conferencing technology and laptop computers, Forkas was able to help his son overcome that social isolation.
"You should have been in the room with those two cameras clicked on and my son could see his friends and they could see him,” said Forkas. “It was magical.”
