My mother and son made a special delivery to Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital of the 75 fleece blankets that Frances made and donated to us (a post about Frances).
Frances and all the blankets she made!!
All 75 blankets!

We are so grateful to be able to spread love and hope in new and creative ways! These blankets were warm and super cute and will absolutely bring smiles, making someone feel extremely special.
Our friend, Laura from Illinois sent us a bunch of baby hats in all different colors and sizes!
Her note reads:
Thank you for all you do!
We are grateful for your support and will include these in our next NICU deliver!
Thanks so much!
We had the great fortune of recently becoming friends with an amazing young lady, Frances. Frances in pursuit of her Girl Scout Gold Award began the project “Warming Hearts.” The gold award is the highest honor that a girl scout can earn and requires that the scout take lead in implementing a plan that will have a sustainable impact on society.
Seeing how Chemo Warriors struggle with keeping warm while receiving chemo treatments firsthand, Frances decided to tackle the problem head-on. She created a strategy to make as many blankets as she could to donate to local hospitals. She designed, advertised, and taught workshops to her community. Through her work, she collected a total of 70 beautiful blankets to donate to Chemo Warriors.
We were fortunate enough to receive these blankets to help spread hope and warmth as proof of Frances’ hard work and dedication. She not only taught her community to make blankets but showed them the power of working together to give to others in need.
Her blankets were designed with all age groups and genders in mind. Some of the 70 total blankets she donated are pictured above. Frances is truly an inspiration and we are so proud to have been part of her journey.
Last week, Frances was awarded her Gold Star award and we couldn’t be prouder of her. We know that this young lady will go on to do more amazing things.
Our friend Amanda sent these to us.
Her note reads:
Thank you for every thing that you do!
Have a blessed 2019!
Today (February 4th) is World Cancer Day.
February 4th is celebrated as World Cancer Day each year. ‘I Am and I Will’- a call to people to identify themselves and pledge action in support of cancer care.
Cancer is a critical health and human issue. Today, 9.6 million people each year will die from cancer. Making it the second-most deadly disease. Yet, at least one third of cancers can be prevented. This gives us all every reason to act.
Count me in: Get involved any way you can. Because together, we can create change.

We are so thankful for friends like Donna!
