I love this charity because it truly inspires me to be a better person.
Lauren, the founder is amazing, she keeps giving of herself and doesn't stop, ever! She and her charity have helped hundreds of women with cancer and their families with medical bills, food, clothing and just about anything they need! Their big fundraiser is an amazing fairytale tea that you must not miss!

The Happily Ever After League headed by the amazing Lauren Daniels is just incredible. Lauren keeps giving and never stops. The work she selflessly does for the hundreds of women throughout the years makes me cry each time I read one of their stories. The teas she puts on year after year grew from a little charming tea in a backyard to a elegant fantasy full blown event that is sold out at a five star hotel now that raises thousands of dollars for this truly amazing totally non profit organization that is so unbelievable. You just have to visit the house and Lord Hamilton, the adorable mini piglet that is the Goodwill Ambassador! He is just darling.

HEAL was started by Lauren Daniels after she was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 35. I am her mother and as most mothers I myself being a breast cancer survivor was beside myself with worry. I knew that she was a strong young women with 3 children and I could run interference to help her and her husband get thru this emotional time in their lives. She called me about 3 months after her surgeries and told me she had this idea and calling to start this non- profit and did I feel that there were other mom's who could use the help and support that she had thru family and friends and they may not have. I immediately told her to look into what she could do to help and with that she was off and running. I have been a founding board member and till this day 13 year later still sit on the board and continue to support the great work that Lauren does with the support of her husband as well as her children. She is a great inspiration to her father and myself and a go getter. There is no one and nothing that stands in her way when she wants to achieve a goal. I cannot tell you how proud we her family are of her and know we will continue to see this great resource for the community grow.

I would like to nominate HEAL for the outstanding community service that this organization provides to the mothers in our community with dependents living at home going through Cancer treatment. Not only do they financially aid with co pays, electric, rent medication but they also have a Healing House where our director has a monthly open house with a program for the families to enjoy. The pantry director opens the pantry monthly to help ensure that the mothers can have the staples they need to keep their family fed properly. The founder herself saw the need for this type of support after being diagnosed at the age of 35 with Breast Cancer and had to look after 3 young children ages 11, 8 and 1. I strongly recommend that HEAL be considered for any donations to help continue the much needed support to this community.

I have nothing but positive experiences with HEAL! My daughter was sick with Glioblastoma Multiforme (the worst type of brain cancer) for 91/2 years and the Happily Ever After League was there for her everyday of her survival. She spoke at there events and was the most positive person regarding her disease.. The HEAL house was very responsible for her positive outlook. Thank you Lauren Daniels and your wonderful group of volunteers! You were great friends to Deni and I cherish every moment we all got to be together. Hugs to everyone on this great team of women! Love you all!

Lauren and everyone else at HEAL showed amazing compassion, love, generosity, and kindness to me and my daughter during my breast cancer recovery. I cannot even put it into words. Super amazing people, and I met wonderful women who encouraged each other there too.

H.E.A.L. was so quick in responding to my request for assistance. I was so surprised and thankful! During this time of treatment after the whole ordeal of being diagnosed with breast cancer and going through the steps to surgery and raising a young child, I couldn't think clearly. I was blessed when I came across this great organization. I was treated with compassion and welcomed into their organization with open arms. We were invited to a Pumpkinfest and that was truly a fun experience for my daughter and I both. I am eternally thankful for Lauren and everyone else at H.E.A.L.
It was great to be with women who knew how I felt and for my daughter to have fun and see others in same situations as us, happy.

My daughter and I have had the pleasure of volunteering at HEAL for many years. HEAL offers loving support for mothers and their families dealing with cancer through emotional comfort, financial assistance, a food pantry, back to school program and holiday celebrations. It is evident and so heartwarming to witness that being a part of the HEAL community means that a mother and her family are never alone in coping with cancer.

I began volunteering for the Happily Ever After League, (HEAL), in 2009. Almost immediately I came to understand just how this organization has shown the compassion and care given to women suffering from cancer, and their families. HEAL has lessened the burden for its recipients by subsidizing a medical bill, a utility payment, or rent. It has brought comfort to these families by providing a safe and nurturing environment at the Healing House where recipients and their families can meet and enjoy activities throughout the year such as Easter Egg Hunts, a Thanksgiving Day Feast, Christmas Fun, Mom's Pampering Day, to name a few. HEAL also provides a Pantry with food and other necessities.

I have seen how HEAL has touched the lives of so many in our communities and brought joy into the lives of those suffering from this disease. I am proud to volunteer for such a worthy organization and continue to see it expand its outreach.

Heal helps mothers undergoing cancer treatment. The organization has helped many women both financially and emotionally through the Healing House. It is very easy to volunteer with Heal. They have opportunities to help with their fund raising events and also at the Healing House. The house has a food pantry and it is easy to volunteer by dropping off food items or having a food drive. The Heal family is a very caring family!

I have volunteered and donated to this nonprofit for many years now. I have also had friends call the Happily Ever After League for advice and help after their own cancer diagnosis. Lauren and her team are compassionate, encouraging, and truly are making a difference in these women's lives.

My daughter and I have volunteered for this group for years. It is amazing what Lauren and the rest of the team do to help women and their families deal with breast cancer and its effects. The FairyTale Tea fundraiser is the most enjoyable fundraiser I have ever attended. The food pantry, in which women can get food for their families at no charge, brings tremendous joy to all involved.

I can not say enough about how much this organization impacted my life while I was going thru cancer treatment as a single mom. From paying bills to giving my son an excellent Christmas to meeting one of my best friends at a survivors movie night there. They have also helped 2 women I know personally. Thank you for being part of my hope in a very dark time!

Lauren Daniels and her staff at HEAL are beyond gracious ambassadors in the fight against cancer. Their events and outreach have tentacles way beyond the event itself. As a survivor herself, Lauren brings legitimacy and grace to the fight that so many women and their families face. They continually create events and cause based outreach that is creative, relevant, dynamic and engaging. From the Heels for HEAL walk to the FairyTale Tea and the home they provide as refuge and food pantry for families, there simply is no other non-profit with a more amazing staff and vision. It has been my honor to attend several events over the years and to watch HEAL build a legacy In Arizona and now, Atlanta. Onwards for HEAL. Bravo!

I could never come up with enough words of love, gratitude, and appreciation for all of the beautiful angels of Happily Ever After League. In 2009 I was diagnosed with Stage 2 Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma 6 months after I lost my son to testicular cancer. So I started seeing a counselor for cancer patients. She knew about losing my son and how I was helping raise 8 of my grandchildren at the same time I was going through cancer treatments. The counselor told me about a wonderful organization that helped women with cancer and she emailed them for me. They helped me right away with a grant to help with rent and food which was a huge blessing! HEAL made Christmas for me and my family amazing by during a time when we really had very little. Me and my grandchildren have continued to be blessed by these amazing women of Happily Ever After League, the food pantry once a month is so wonderful and they even make that a fun event. Although I am now cancer free, but living with health issues from the treatments, they don't turn their back on you. We still are included in the food pantry and all of the wonderful events that these amazing and caring women organize for the families. I am truly blessed for knowing the wonderful team of people at Happily Ever After League and like I said, I could never find enough words of love, gratitude and appreciation to say how much they mean to me, my family and all of the other families that find their way to them too because of an unfortunate diagnosis of cancer. God Bless the team at Happily Ever After League!!!

Heal and the Healing House is shares love with all of their recipients. The Board Members work to make the organization a place where moms and their families can forget their worries for a bit while undergoing cancer treatment. It is a wonderful organization!

My children and I have been volunteering for HEAL for several years now. Over the course of that time, we have participated in many events. The amount of joy, peace and value they give to others is beyond compare. It is one of the few charities I feel comfortable donating. There is no question every dime donated goes right back to help those who need it most. It is honestly the most incredible facility I have seen. I am proud to be a volunteer at HEAL. They have helped countess women and their families. Unfortunately, the demand for their services seems to be increasing. They are not backing away from the challenge.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006. I was raising 2 small children. I needed some financial help and emotional support. I was devastated and I felt all alone. Then I found HEAL. They helped me financially. I went through 8 surgeries and HEAL was there for every one of them. The time you get to spend with other women, just like you is priceless. Whether we are making crafts or watching our kids enjoy an activity, someone is watching over your every need and theirs. The pantry help is awesome and I have lived and fed my family sometimes solely on pantry food. The care they take in choosing what would be beneficial to families with children , well you can just tell Lauren has put a personal touch into it. Backpacks for school, Moms night out, Eggstravaganza, Mommy and me tea, Thanksgiving dinner, all the events at HEAL house are awesome. They take your mind off of everything.Its hard to get my little guy to leave. At Christmastime, we are especially blessed, with presents for the kiddos and ourselves. Some Christmases these were the only gifts my two little ones received and they were more than enough. Let me not forget the staff and volunteers,truly above board, putting their hearts and souls into everything they do for us. There are no words of thankfulness that I could express that would be enough to show the gratitude that I feel for this organization. Tomorrow, November 6, 2014, I will celebrate 6 years cancer free and of course, I could have done it without HEAL, but I can honestly say I am so glad I didn't have to. The bonds and friendships I have made will be with me forever. Thank you so much for everything Happily Ever After League, you are truly God sent.
