Philo is donating its service of over 60 channels of live and on-demand programming, while Bright Spirit has donated smart TV's for each guest room and common areas. Channels include Discovery Family, Nickelodeon, Teen Nick, Nicktoons, and Nick Jr., and a host of channels--from A&E to We--for the parents.

"This is an amazing contribution to our guests who stay here, and it will provide them with many hours of entertainment and distraction from the daily medical treatments that everyone participates in," said Danna Gildersleeve, director of operations for Children's House.
