As you can see in the photos, we received: glow in the dark critter/bugs etc, soaps, wet wipes, craft kits, coloring books, note pads, lotions, and more. We also have received a few baskets.

About Ellen

Ellen was my Great-Grandmother (Nana). She went home to be with the Lord on April 19, 2009 after a battle with leukemia, she was 82 years old. Nana was an amazing lady who devoted her life to her family. She was always thinking of others. When she died, I started thinking of how other families feel when their loved ones get sick from leukemia. That's when I asked mom if there was anything I could do to help and that's how Ellen's Hope started.
