We love sending care packages to kids all over the United States fighting! Each care package is filled with goodies that meet the individual child's personality, 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... 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. 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.
Our Amazing Fighters partnered with the Sadie Keller Foundation in 2019 to provide Christmas to kids fighting cancer at Children's National Hospital in Washington, DC. Our Amazing Fighters was able to collect nearly 500 toys for the pediatric oncology unit thanks to incredible friends, generous donors and so much support!
