This past Valentine's Day we asked our supporters to submit valentines online to our patients, with help from our furry friend Boo. Our goal was to collect 1,000 cards, but you overwhelmed us with Valentine love and sent in an astonishing 1,375 cards! Former patients, current patients, staff, and supporters from 38 states and throughout the world including Brazil, New Zealand, Egypt, and Denmark sent in messages of hope.  Plus, many of you took the next step and donated to our Hearts of Hope fundraiser, raising $7,749 for our patients! 

Below are just a few of our favorite valentine messages. Download the full list of messages here (yes, it's really 79 pages long!). From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you for your thoughtfulness and generosity in spreading the Valentine's love to our patients!

Looking back now, we are grateful for the care and love our nurses and other people showed us every step of the way. If you can stay focused on the little gifts that come your way every day, you are half way home already.  Wishing you strength and good health.

Linda: You are SO AMAZING to us so we wanted to wish you a VERY HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!  You are so brave and your courage is amazing.  Keep fighting and NEVER GIVE UP!  We pray for you every day! Love, The Rossi Family Dave, Linda, Luke and Cole (aka our cancer survivor)

It's not too late! You can still donate to the Hearts of Hope fundraiser and help more kids in our care.
