In 2013, Ellie was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. By the time she entered kindergarten, she had lost most of her hair. We donated fun hats to Ellie. Now, we’ve expanded far beyond hats. Whether it’s granting a wish or supporting families in need, each day we work to make a child with cancer day a little brighter.
What We Do
Hats and financial assistance
We send boxes of hats to hospitals and clinics for the children being treated for cancer.
“Financial Assistance Program”
This Program was started in Jan 2019 and is coordinated with the Pediatric Specialists of Virginia Clinic, in Falls Church VA. **In March of 2022 we expanded the “Financial Assistance Program” to WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital in Morgantown WV. Each month the social workers select five families who are struggling financially. We give each one of those families a $1,000 check. As of Feb 2024, we have now donated over $500,000 through this program.
Hero Bag Program
We donate bags containing items that are helpful to newly diagnosed pediatric cancer patients at Inova Children’s Hospital. The items in the Hero Bags were recommended by the Child Life Team.
We have donated hundreds of these bags.
Grant a Wish
As we learn more about the child with cancer we do what we can to help them and their family.
