iPad Mini Birthday BASH 2015

Every child battling cancer at OHSU Doernbecher
and Randall Children's Hospital received an 
Apple iPad Mini in honor of sweet Hunter Bean's 9th birthday. 


oh lovie...
The magic your lil' soul creates fills me with such joy. I wouldn't be able to make it through this day without your presence being all around me...and I will tell you with the sweetest of hearts, that I will truly feel your cuddly lil' arms giving me wonderfully, tight bean squeezes all day long. I'm so proud of you and your amazing lil' legacy. You rock it in the coolest of ways my love. Blowing you smooches to tickle your belly from sunrise to sunset...I love you sweet pea xoxoxoxoxoxoxo


Every courageous, lil' warrior that we could find was given some 
amazingly, heartfelt love from a cool, lil' Angel up above.

"Awesomeness.  Love at its purest and finest,
all in the name of Hunter.  Love Love"  Pam Edwards

Some of the most amazing and meaningful hugs
I've ever received.  

"Dear Lenore,
Chloe received her iPad Mini today and screamed in sheer joy! 
I can't thank you enough for the sweet note you wrote. 
I shared it with my daughter & son in law, we are all truly touched. 
We appreciate the thoughtful way you lift the spirits of 
brave fighters and their families!
We took a picture of Chloe with her iPad and will send it to the 
Elliott family with the thank you note enclosed in the package.
