The Valentine Project

The Valentine Project was started in response to our experiences working with children with cancer and their siblings. We noticed that many patients and siblings don’t look forward to Valentine’s Day because of what they’re going through. Cancer can be lonely for patients and siblings alike, and Valentine’s Day often highlights that loneliness. Because of the physical, emotional, and cognitive side effects of cancer treatment, not to mention the absences from school that come along with a serious medical diagnosis, these children may struggle to “fit in” with their peers. Gradually, we learned that many of the social challenges that children with cancer face affect all children with chronic illnesses and their families; so, we adjusted our mission to be all-inclusive for children with cancer, children with chronic illnesses, and their families. At The Valentine Project, our goal is for all children whose lives are affected by cancer or a chronic illness to feel special and loved each Valentine’s Day. We hope you’ll join us in supporting these deserving families. We’re true believers that one box filled with love can change someone’s life.

Barbara says: "Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts 💕 this last month has been plagued with hospital stays and tons of doctors appointments for our youngest, and the oldest two have been so amazing with Mommy being away with their baby so often. So when we got our amazing packages I cried tears of joy seeing how happy it made not only our special baby but her older siblings too. Everyone was so thankful and we were all able to share some smiles all together as a family." Thank you for being part of The Valentine Project family, Barbara! Sending so much love to all of you <3
