While part of our mission is to help fund research for new treatments for childhood cancers and a large portion of our funding is allocated for this purpose, another big aspect of our mission is to provide Christian focused support for families impacted by this dreadful disease.
In 2016, we had our first ‘Faith, Hope, Love’ event for the childhood cancer community which featured Grammy Award Winning Christian singer/songwriter Laura Story for a night of encouragement and love. Laura shared her testimony and performed songs such as “Blessings” and “Perfect Peace”.
We had a separate children’s event with games, activities, and magic from our friend Turley the Magician! All guests were welcomed with a gift basket of goodies donated by local vendors such as Tranquility Day Spa, information from other local non-profits such as Healing Hearts Respite, and our very own Faith, Hope, Love coffee mug filled with Hershey kisses. Alex’s Army hosted this free event for the childhood cancer community and it truly was a night of Faith, Hope, and Love!
