Sweet Wrap Up - 2016 iPad Birthday BASH

Hunter's 10th Birthday was an incredibly HUGE success!!

So many magnificent people to thank for making his
awesome day a day full of love, surprises
and brilliant, brilliant smiles.
Happy Birthday my love!  Your amazing sweetness is shining bright!

"Happy Birthday little hero.  You have brought hope, happiness, and 
understanding to so many.  Thanks for all the help you've given to
your wonderful mom and dad.  You have given others so much strength".
Ann Audley

This spectacular event started with 21 iPods back in 2011.  We thought it would be super cool to try to get each and every kiddo fighting cancer that was admitted to Doernbecher Children's Hospital an iPod Touch to help distract them and provide some awesome entertainment while they were going through treatments. Their Oncology Unit has 21 rooms.  Hunter's birthday is on the 21st.  So 21 seemed like a good number and an excellent place to start.  We got 21 iPods donated that first year from all of Hunter's sweet supporters, plus 2 more sweet ones to boot.

Well we definitely thought that was awesome, but then the next year we got 25, the following year 35, then 40, then we switched to iPad Mini's and got 55 in 2015...and now...this year, we did 105 iPad Mini's and delivered them to 5 major children's hospitals on the West Coast!!!  Absolutely unreal.

"We gave out our first iPad today to a patient in transplant, it was heart melting!!!
It couldn't have been a more perfect gift for them, thank you for making such an
incredible difference.  We are all so delighted by this gift".  Stephanie Chami, CHOC

25 iPad Mini's went to kiddos fighting cancer at Seattle Children's Hospital!

100 iPads Donated to Children Battling Cancer in Honor of a Little Boy who Lost his Life
Parents who lost their child to AML Leukemia are making surprise deliveries of Apple iPad Minis to children battling cancer at 5 major children’s hospitals on the West Coast. The Seattle Seahawks will be helping with the delivery at Seattle Children’s Hospital and then the Parents will be delivering them to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and Randall Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon. iPad's are also being delivered to Children’s Hospital Los Angels, Children’s Hospital of Orange County and kiddos battling cancer across the country. 
The heart-broken parents created the Healing Hunter Foundation 6 years ago on behalf of their son Hunter, their charismatic little 3-year-old boy that lost his battle in March of 2010. The 100 iPad mini’s are in honor of Hunter’s 10th birthday and the foundation wanted to celebrate it with an appropriate bang increasing their donation from the past year from 50 to 100 iPad Minis. They will also be delivered in their brand new "Live to LOVE" trailer sponsored by Chaz Dean of WEN.
Little Hunter watched his favorite movie Cars, and rocked-out to cool music videos during his long and intensive cancer treatments with the help of his parents iPhones. This technology served as an incredible distraction while little Hunter was fighting for his life. Hunter’s parents know all too well what it’s like for a child to face the harsh reality of cancer and wanted to give these kiddos an amazing way to escape. 
Among the many generous sponsors that make this happen are Paul Stanley from the rock bank KISS, Celebrity Hairstylist Chaz Dean of Wen Hair Care, Fred Meyer and Lightning Cupcakes & Cakes, (a 5 star bakery boutique in Beaverton created by Hunter’s mom with a mission to raise money directly for children with cancer). 
The Healing Hunter Foundation’s mission is three fold: to bring smiles to the children suffering from these devastating diseases, to increase bone marrow and cord blood donations, and to assist other families dealing with childhood cancers.

September is nationally recognized as Childhood Cancer Awareness month
