When children go to the hospital for cancer treatments, these monkeys save their seats back at school.

“Monkey in My Chair” is the national program that places the stuffed monkeys at kids’ desks to maintain a connection with their classmates. The huggable animal is a reminder for students of what their classmate is going through, and helps them remember their friend.

Children eagerly take the monkey with them on their daily routines around the classroom, and to recess and lunch throughout the school.

Each monkey comes with its own backpack, to send classwork, as well as encouraging messages to the little patient. There’s also a book to help teachers answer questions from their students.
