Review for ALEXANDRA CHILES FOUNDATION, Menlo Park, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Alexandra Chiles Foundation serves a community of children who are fighting cancer. The foundation provides the gift of keeping these children's mind occupied while working on a craft that is fun and useful at the same time.

I remember well when Alexandra was at Children's Hospital and she made oragami ornaments to decorate Christmas trees that her family passed on the friends. It was Alexandra's idea to do beading and other crafts to alleviate the tedious time while going through chemotherapy. She always kept busy with her hands during those long periods of time at the hospital.

Thousands of stricken children have been the happy recipients of beading kits provided, at first by the Chiles family, and now by the foundation. Alexandra's creative vision to entertain children with cancer needs to be expanded to reach children all over the United States and some day, beyond the boundaries of the US.

It is a joy, pleasure and honor to contribute to this most worthwhile cause and foundation.
