PROJECT 3.8 was founded by Robyn Ivy in collaboration with Melissa Murray of the Dorian J. Murray Foundation to carry on Dorian’s legacy.


PROJECT 3.8's mission is:

  • To educate people about the disruption cancer brings to families
  • To encourage and inspire others to help their neighbors who are fighting cancer
  • To financially support pediatric cancer research

The current centerpiece of the PROJECT 3.8 is a traveling exhibit featuring twenty portraits, shot by Robyn, of children fighting cancer and their families.

The exhibit will be showcased in multiple galleries throughout Rhode Island, beginning September 2016 during National Childhood Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month.

"#DStrong legacy carries on with traveling photo exhibit . . ."


Join PROJECT 3.8 as an exhibit sponsor, and be part of the #Dstrong movement to reveal the faces of childhood cancer. 

Your sponsorship will:

  • Support the production and promotion of a mobile gallery event.
  • Produce 20 large-scale portraits of children who are currently battling cancer, are in remission or are angels lost to a pediatric cancer.
  • Secure 20+ smaller photographs that document childhood cancer journeys.

Sponsorships are available for corporations and individuals, all of which support the production of the 7+ event series that launched at The Ocean House, September 3, 2016.

With your help, we can make The Faces of PROJECT 3.8 traveling exhibit a reality, increase the quality of life for these children and their families, and support the much-needed funds for pediatric cancer research.

Every Day Ways To Help

There are so many ways you can help a child with cancer and his or her family.

Here are a few tangible, meaningful actions you can take:

  • Walk the family's dog
  • Mow the lawn
  • Gift mom a massage
  • Take siblings to the park
  • Buy the family movie passes
  • Take over carpool duties for a week
  • Do the laundry or dry cleaning
  • Get friends together to clean the house
  • Plant flowers on the porch
  • Get the car washed
  • Hire a housekeeper once or twice a month
  • Donate gas cards
  • Host a gift card drive
  • Donate restaurant gift certificates
  • Hire a handyman for odd jobs around their house
  • Buy gift certificates for online and local grocery stores
  • Pizza gift certificates
  • iTunes gift cards for apps and music while in the hospital
  • Start a meal trail
  • Educate yourself about cancer
  • Treat them like normal people
  • Donate to the Tomorrow Fund

It's hard to imagine the impact on an entire family when one child gets a cancer diagnosis.

Schedules explode, child care is disrupted.

Work schedules and commitments often come to a screeching halt so the family can attend to the medical, physical and emotional needs now affecting every member of a household.

It can be challenging for friends, neighbors and even family to know what the "right" thing to do is.

The truth is, there is no "right" thing to do to help.

Any action you take to help out gives a family the opportunity to take a break, unwind for a few precious seconds, and maybe say 'yes' to your kind offer of support.
