Teen Project was founded in 2014 by Steven and Matthew Spirakis, who learned that the hospital often receives toy donations for young patients, but seldom receives appropriate gifts for teen patients. To expand Teen Project, the brothers partnered with T.J. and Luke Schmitt of Garden City-based Charlie’s Champions Foundation. The foundation was established by the Schmitt family in honor of Charlie Schmitt, a cancer survivor who was treated at the NYU Langone Cancer Center for Kids—Mineola.
As the largest outpatient facility for children with cancer and blood disorders in Nassau County, NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island Cancer Center for Kids (CCFK) is at the forefront of treatment and research. NYU Langone Hospital—Long Island Child Life Program is dedicated to helping children understand and cope with the hospital experience.
