We love sending care packages to kids fighting cancer and their siblings all over the United States! Each care package is completely customized and filled to meet the needs of the child along with goodies that meet their personality, interests, likes, and hobbies.
Every child that we work with receives a special Our Amazing Fighters' blanket with our logo, the gold childhood cancer awareness ribbon and their name... It serves as a way to bring comfort and warmth but also as a reminder of their BRAVERY.
Our Amazing Fighters has been going to Capitol Hill since 2017 to advocate for better research, funding and legislation for pediatric cancer. We have helped lobby for the RACE for Children's Act, The STAR Act, H. Res 114 (#moonshot4kids), Kids First Act 2.0, and the reauthorization of the Creating Hope Act. We have been to DC numerous times and during the Coronavirus pandemic, we have been lobbying virtually! We also have participated in local/ state legislative work in addition to the national level work we have done.

Bald american girl dolls:
Losing hair is never an easy process. Cancer rips children of their health but also takes away so much more, from holidays to hair.
We have had the blessing of getting to send bald dolls to little girls who have recently lost their hair. We hope that they find joy in having a friend that looks like them and it brings them joy through out their battle. It is a reminder that they are not alone in this fight.
*At the end of treatment- you can contact American Girl Brand and they will add hair to the doll for free!
Part of our amazing fighters mission is spreading awareness and advocating on behalf of all kids who have or are fighting pediatric cancer. Our amazing fighters started off as a social media page and we love getting to honor warriors, remember angels and share facts on our page...
Local richmond support:
For families local to the Richmond/ Central Virginia area, we provide respite care, meal deliveries, free babysitting and connection with other families through events and parties. We want to be a blessing to these parents, their children both fighters and super sibs, so even if it that means just a coffee delivery to the hospital, we are here to help in any way possible.
