What Hunter's spectacular LOVE has become...

"The story you are about to read is about a mother and her fierce and unwavering love for her son. The decision to post it during Christmas week was a thoughtful one.  Here is a mother who, despite having the ultimate tragedy thrown her way, remains one of the most joyful people I have ever met.  Her love for her son moves mountains, and that devotion and passion has translated into her work and the projects she has taken on in his memory.  There is no Q&A at the end of this profile because their story is enough.  What you will find are links to where you can donate to her amazing organizations and their fun, spirited events; and also sign-up for the national bone marrow registry, which I assure you is so easy to do and so…so important.  Thank you for reading, and have a happy, joyful holiday." Morgan Brasfield, Driven for Women

Surprise Santa Sacks

Surprise Santa Sacks and toys were delivered to
on Christmas Eve to every kiddo fighting cancer!!!

They were filled to the rim with tons of puzzles, games, trucks,
cars, Barbies, coloring books, blankets and some of the teens even
got iPods!  

One of the sweet sacks that went to a 2-month old lil' warrior.

Inside is a soft musical giraffe, a whirl & tumble elephant, (3) teethers, 
a seahorse rattle, a Patchwork baby blanket, a pink flower beanie, 
an extremely cozy swaddle blanket, a lil' flower clip, a soft, happy daisy, 
a colorful pinwheel and then it's topped off with super soft and 
fuzzy & very cuddly stuffed animals. Filled to the rim with lots of 
amazing love and thoughtfulness.

Only the beginning of what it takes to decorate the entire Oncology Unit!


It takes thousands of dollars and thousands of ornaments to pull 
off this incredible event every holiday season. 

We are doing it up Superhero style this year and will be turning the entire 
oncology unit at Doernbecher Children's Hospital into an extremely 
cool, POWER packed Universe!!!!

We'll be decorating November 30th!

Donate here if you like to help us spread the amazing holiday cheer!!
