More Than
Just A Hat

We founded Ellie’s Hats to brighten the day of children with cancer. Since Ellie’s Hats began five years ago, we have sent nearly 1,900 packages to children with cancer across the country.  We have donated over $170,000 to families and hospitals, in the form of checks, gift cards and other items which have a direct impact on the families.

Our Story

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

Ellie’s Helps

A diagnosis can place a large financial burden on families. Ellie’s Hats helps families who have a child with cancer and is being treated at the Pediatric Specialists of Virginia Clinic in Falls Church, VA.

Hero Bag Program

We donate bags containing helpful items to newly diagnosed pediatric cancer patients at Inova Children’s Hospital. The items in the “Hero Bags” were recommended by the Child Life Specialists.

Grant a Wish

We work with families to learn about their child’s wish and help make it come true.

Thank You
