Stickers + encouragement = smiles for kids!
A few months ago, we asked City of Hope supporters like you to bring smiles to young faces by signing and returning a colorful sheet of stickers for us to distribute to pediatric cancer patients. And that's just what you did!
"We were touched by the response," said City of Hope president and CEO Dr. Michael Friedman. "I knew when I made this request, our friends would act quickly and with great generosity. But even I did not expect the wave of kindness and compassion we experienced."
Many donors did more than just sign their names to the stickers, choosing to add personal notes, drawings and other messages of encouragement.
The results were heartwarming. "Young children love stickers, and children fighting cancer are no different," Dr. Friedman explained. "But here, the fun of the stickers was combined with wonderfully caring messages from our friends and partners. It truly made a difference for many children facing difficult fights against disease."
This program proves what we mean when we say you are a partner in the lifesaving work of City of Hope. By signing and returning your sheet of stickers, you brought happiness and positive energy to some of our youngest patients.
Thank you so much for caring for kids!
