When my best friend’s daughter was diagnosed with cancer six years ago, more than anything, I just wanted to help. I sat with her in the hospital, brought food, babysat her other kids, and even cleaned her house. But I wanted to do more. I wondered if I could do more. Years of volunteering in hospice and working with kids as a volunteer club leader gave me the courage I needed to begin Forever We. I knew that if we could just get everybody in a room together and talk about what was going on, together we could figure out how to engage both children and adults alike, and really make a difference! It’s been five years since we gave away our first doll, and we realized that lots of kids face seemingly insurmountable challenges. And what we see on the outside isn’t always what’s going on inside. That’s why we’ve created a brand new line of dolls that help kids discover (and talk about) what’s going on in their lives from the inside out.
My favorite part of Forever We is the brave kids who not only receive our dolls, but share them with their friends!
