Leah's Baskets of Hope
Leah’s Baskets is the vision of Leah Graves, a childhood cancer survivor. She knew first hand, the toll it took on a family when they had a child in the hospital, fighting a life-threatening disease. She was in and out of hospitals her entire childhood. As an adult, Leah made it her mission to bring a little comfort to the families of children with cancer. She started making “Baskets of Hope” to distribute to the St. Francis Children’s Hospital Oncology Floor. Leah could not work due to complications from the radiation she was given, and she was purchasing these gifts out of her own pocket! Leah had a beautiful spirit and a heart of gold. Unfortunately, Leah lost her battle in May of 2013. It is now our mission to continue her vision of Leah’s Baskets.
For Easter and Halloween we assemble gift baskets using the donations we have received. The baskets are delivered to the children at St. Francis Children's Hospital to help bring some joy during a difficult time. The children that receive these baskets range in age from just a few days old to seventeen years old.
Monetary donations are accepted throughout the year. Donate Now
