3rd Annual iPod Birthday BASH

A GIFT TO REMEMBER | Lenore Thawley (right), President and Founder of the Healing Hunter Foundationgives an iPod to Noemi Torres, a patient at Randall Children's Hospital at Legacy Emanuel, on Friday. This is the third year that Thawley's foundation has given gifts to youths battling cancer at area hospitals to mark the Sept. 21 birthday of her son, Hunter, who died of Leukemia in 2010.

Healing Hunter Foundation's iPod Birthday BASH - 2013 

The Healing Hunter Foundation donated an iPod Touch to every child battling cancer at 
 Doernbecher Children's Hospital and Randall Children's Hospital on Friday, Sept. 20th in honor of their son Hunter, who lost his battle to AML Leukemia in 2010. 

It's was an amazing fundraising effort and 
with the help, support and love of all of their sponsors, fans,
friends and family, they were able to donate 40 iPods this year!!!!!

The kids were truly, over the moon, with excitement
when they received their spunky, lil packages that contained
a 4th Generation, 16gig iPod Touch.

Hand delivered with love, these gifts provide amazing
amounts of entertainment and joy while these brave, lil'
warriors go through treatment, usually for weeks or months at a time.

It opens up a whole world of FUN for them
right at their fingertips and they are always greatly appreciated!

Surprise Easter Delivery a SUCCESS

Tina Michelle Wiles - 

"Lenore, you've done it again.  I'll have to recreate the sheer delight and happiness
your work brings to the kids and their families here at DCH.  You, Zen, Hunter
and little tot are truly our angels.
Much warm, fuzzy loves..."

Healing Hunter Foundation's
Surprise Easter Delivery

Another wonderful success!

On the night before Easter,
All through the halls,
Lil’ warriors were sleeping,
Under bright, twinkling stars.

Sparkling with utmost delight,
And hearts full of love,
These stars shined brilliant cues,
To sprinkle sweetness from above.

As the stars gave their cue,
In snuck sweet, bunny nurses,
That had beautiful, sacks full of goodies,
Legos, puzzles, books, toys and purses!

For little did these sleeping, warriors know,
That bunnies all over town,
had been thinking of them, sweetly,
and were so very excited for dawn.

For when the sun came up,
And their eyes opened wide,
They set sights upon surprise sacks,
Sweet, Easter Bunnies delivered to hide.

These sacks were ripped open with joy,
Their hearts rang laughter and love,
And they were COVERED in toys,
While the bunnies and bright stars, twinkled love from above.

Vicki Poore - 

"My son was a recipient of one of these amazing baskets...and it was awesome.
He was so happy...and made us feel better too.  We couldn't get out to get
him one.  What a nice surprise.  Thank you...thank you.  Thank you."

Dropping off the bags at Doernbechers!

STUFFED with all kinds of sweet, goodness!

Helping the Easter Bunny out with 
some pretty important deliveries.

Some fun items that were stuffed in
a few of the sacks.

Many thanks and warm love to all that participated.  
And a very huge, loving shout out to 
Team in Training, (TNT Walk / Run Summer Season 2013)!
They've participated for 2 years in a row now and they
completely spoil us!
Talk about sharing the love :)

Big, loving THANK YOU's going out to all of our amazing supporters
