WERE PUTTING THE MERRY BACK IN CHRISTMAS FOR CHLA CANCER FIGHTERS!!!! Lilly was diagnosed with Ewing's sarcoma bone cancer on November 14th, 2012. She started her first round of chemo at 4 months old on thanksgiving day. Her first thanksgiving. When Christmas rolled around it was miserable . Knowing my daughter would be getting chemo , living in a hospital on my favorite holiday was devastating . So I brought Christmas to my Lilly. We got a little tree ( Charlie Brown tree) and I brought presents and covered the walls in Christmas decorations and played Christmas music. I wanted her to feel like it would have if we would have been home. But Christmas Eve rolled around and we were stuck in a high rise in the middle of down town Los angles, prisoners to fighting cancer. No showing her Christmas lights, no curling up on the couch watch a Christmas story, no baking cookies and showing her the traditions of Christmas. No Christmas pjs, no excitement, no Christmas. No child deserves this. No family deserves this. This Christmas Eve will be different for those kids and their families. I will promise you that. We are bringing merry back to Christmas in the halls of chla. I will be doing things a little different for Christmas than we did for Halloween. We will be making baskets and each kid and mom gets a basket. We need you to help us fill the basket. The joy of this is each kid will have something to unwrap on Christmas morning the baskets will be wrapped and they will lay awake in their hospital bed all night wondering what fills the amazing team Lilly basket this is what we need : 60 blankets ( printed, quilt, tie blanket, comforter, ANY KIND), 60 printed pillow cases ( any design), 60 stalkings , 60 ornament ( each kid will get one so these need to be not the globe kind, something special looking ) , 60 big toys ( leap frog, music guitar , dancing Elmo, Barbie , Legos etc) , 30 Christmas print headbands, 30 boy bow ties, 30 non Christmas headbands, 60 candy canes, 60 Christmas socks. All of these items will fill the basket the mommy basket will be filled with "sponsor a mommy items". So stay tuned for that. Please help us give these kids and their family a Christmas memory filled with joy!! We will be throwing a party then they get their basket as they leave. So we will need LOTS of decorations, Christmas music, table covers, and so on!!! Will you be the reason these kids feel merry on Christmas? Help us CHANGE their journey. Everything can be mailed to 2815 saint Elmo dr. Rialto ca 92376
