Lending Hearts was founded on the need to give back for all that my family was given when my youngest sister was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hogkin’s Disease. She was diagnosed the day after she turned 17, and we never would have survived had it not been for all of the prayers, love and support of so many. They lent their hearts to us, and now we lend ours to every other family fighting childhood and young adult cancer.
