Childhood Cancer Patients Receive 10 iPads with EMF Protection from DefenderShield and Apple-A-Day Foundation

The Apple-A-Day Child Cancer Patient Charity is a nonprofit Tampa-based foundation that relies on donations to provide children with cancer patients with new iPads and smartphones. After hearing that donations have slowed significantly during the COVID pandemic, DefenderShield – a local digital wellness company – donated not only iPads, but also tablet cases with EMF radiation shielding to help protect children undergoing cancer treatment from the wireless frequencies emitted by Mobile Devices.

The Apple-A-Day Child Cancer Patient Charity is a local Tampa nonprofit whose mission is to bring joy to the lives of childhood cancer

patients by gifting them brand new iPads and smartphones. They rely on donations from people in the Tampa community, which has slowed significantly during the COVID pandemic.

When DefenderShield, a local digital wellness company, learned of the need for donations, they realized they could donate not just iPads, but iPad cases with DefenderShield’s proprietary electromagnetic frequency (EMF) radiation shielding.

All electronics and mobile devices emit EMF radiation. Research has linked these non-ionizing frequencies to biological effects on the body after a long period of exposure to close contact. DefenderShield offers a wide range of EMF shielding products for all types of electronic devices that block potentially harmful radiation emissions from direct contact with the body.

“Once We Heard About It” [Apple-A-Day’s] mission and the COVID-related impact on their efforts, we wanted to help,” said Daniel DeBaun, co-founder and CEO of DefenderShield. “As our products are specifically designed to protect against EMF radiation, which children are most vulnerable to: especially children undergoing cancer treatment – we knew we could make a difference in the lives of some of these little warriors.”

“As an e-commerce health and wellness company, we’ve been very lucky and experience fewer shutdowns than many of our local counterparts,” confirms Ryan DeBaun, co-founder and COO. “We wanted to do our part and encourage other healthy local businesses to do the same. Every device donated makes a huge difference in the life of a pediatric cancer patient, so we hope our efforts inspire others to donate too.”

DefenderShield donated a total of 10 tablets and 10 DefenderShield EMF Protection Tablet Cases to Apple-A-Day. Apple-A-Day hopes the tablet donations can help pediatric cancer patients, such as 16-year-old Samara (pictured above), experience the simple joys of entertainment, keep up with schoolwork and keep in touch with friends and family while they cancer have treatments.

“This is so huge for us. We were incredibly excited about the DefenderShield iPad cases and this just blows us away!” added Tara Gill, Director of Operations at Apple-A-Day. “These kids are absolutely amazing and their stories can be heartbreaking at times, but something as small as a tablet can change their lives.”

Donations have been delayed, but the need has not. DefenderShield hopes more local businesses will be inspired to support Apple-A-Day’s efforts to bring a sense of normalcy to Tampa Bay’s brave pediatric cancer patients in an otherwise terrifying and isolated battle. DefenderShield’s partnership with Apple-A-Day is part of their ongoing effort to support small nonprofit organizations that align with DefenderShield’s mission of digital wellbeing.
