It’s been a whole year since LOLLIPOP’s last online fundraiser. And in that year, I’ve seen so many smiles – have heard so many giggles & belly laughs - and have seen so many secret handshakes and silly dances between patients and their favorite movie stars, I think my heart is going to burst!
Now if you know me, you know that I REALLY wish we were bringing an actual cure to these kids. Wouldn’t that be fantastic! But someone pointed out to me that LOLLIPOP was a place that offered an emotional cure by providing movies, music, art and just a whole lotta love. I like that.
-A place where a boy or girl can get so engrossed in their favorite film that they forget they’re hooked up to an IV machine, or that tomorrow is the day of the surgery on their brain tumor.
-A place where a child can be motivated to begin the physical therapy they’ve been avoiding just by getting them to walk to the playroom so they can join our musical guests and become a rock star!
-A place where brothers and sisters can have a real, normal family experience – one they’ve been denied for so long – by visiting with the artists who create their favorite animated films.
-A place where a mom or a dad can escape from the mental anguish they’ve been experiencing, by watching their child laugh instead of watching them fight for his/her life.
The investment you make today gives LOLLIPOP the ability to continue creating these special moments and memories. <!--EndFragment-->
