When a child is diagnosed with cancer they
either have a port (aka: port-a-cath, central venous catheter), or a broviac (a
long term central line) surgically placed which is used to administer their
chemotherapy, blood transfusions, fluids, etc. To help ease the child’s anxiety
we send them a personalized Lovie Buddy which not only has a port as well, but it
also comes with a medical kit filled with the same “safe” supplies that are
used on our kiddos fighting cancer.
Unfortunately we are not at a point with our
Lovie Buddies where they are massed produced, so for now they’re being
assembled to order which gets a little pricey between the cost of the doll,
medical supplies and shipping fees. While
any donation towards our Lovie Buddies helps, to sponsor a doll in it’s
entirety we ask for a $50 donation. The
best part is that 100% of this donation will go directly towards these
dolls! Thanks in advance for helping!!
"We almost cried watching Sammy smile when she saw Marshall! She didn't even notice the port right away, but once she realized he had one she was so excited!! She's sitting on the couch with him rubbing his "owie." We're very blessed for how amazing people have been to our daughter during her time of need. Her emotions have been all over the place lately, I feel like this is an opportunity for her to feel like she has someone that's exactly like her." - Jordyn (Sammy's mom)
