Happily Ever After (HEAL) is a valuable resource to the community financially helping moms with dependents who are going thru cancer treatments. They also have a HEALING HOUSE which throughout the year has a pantry that continues to help the families after the initial grant that is given to the mom. The families receive a monthly newsletter letting them know of the different programs that they can sign up for to help them with their lives and living after a cancer diagnosis. My hat off to this amazing Non Profit organization for the work that they do.

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've been volunteering for HEAL for a few years. All the other volunteers are very kind, hard working, and dedicated to the families they serve at every event and for every need. The families who attend the events are so loving and full of joy they're delightful to be with!

There is no finer organization for supporting women with children while undergoing a cancer diagnosis. My connection to the Happily Ever After League goes back to its humble beginnings and to see it continue to make a difference in so many lives is awe-inspiring. The organization's support is like a hand that wraps around the family and offers support from their help with social services and providing a caring social life. They have created a warm and supporting environment that keeps their promise to all of their moms. I can't say enough about their reputation and love in our community. As a volunteer, I've had the pleasure to help with social events for families, organize their food pantry for families, spend a day with moms and their families just talking and hanging out. For me, HEAL creates smiles for miles that keep me coming back to support their mission and vision. The families get some much-needed respite from a tough time in their lives and HEAL does it well and with love!

It has been amazing to watch HEAL grow throughout the years. Being able to help families going through a cancer diagnosis is a wonderful feeling. I've learned so much from the women I've met. It is really amazing to get to connect with different families and give them a sense of community during a difficult time.

My daughters and I love volunteering at HEAL. Whether we’re stocking the food pantry, cleaning the HEAL House, or helping out at a fundraiser, we always feel like we’re contributing to HEAL’s mission, which is helping moms and families coping with cancer. Founder Lauren Daniels is such a compassionate soul, and her kindness permeates throughout the organization. All the staff at HEAL are so friendly to work with. Wonderful local nonprofit!

I have been a part of HEAL for 14 years. I have seen first hand how much this organization helps Mother’s while dealing with a cancer diagnosis. The monthly house events allows everyone to feel accepted and maybe for an hour or so, to not think about cancer. The volunteers are amazing and show such compassion. The HEALing House has a food Pantry as well. Moms come and choose foods for their families, free of charge. Pantry Days are a special time for these moms to have some quiet time, make a craft and connect with the other moms.
HEAL also offers many outreach programs. Back to School, Thanksgiving and our incredible Winterfest, just to mention a few.
I am honored to be a small part of this organization and work with such compassionate people.

The Happily Ever After League is such a valuable resource for so many Moms fighting a cancer diagnosis. The different layers the organization offers is astounding. Not only do they provide a financial grant, they have a HEALing House the families come to for love and support. They also have a food pantry to help with the ever rising costs associated with cancer. They also have other outreach programs as well.So many Moms have shared with us how valuable this is to them. Many families do not have extended families living close by and have told us how much HEAL makes a difference in their lives. Many leave the HEALing House knowing that someone truly cares about them. What an honor to be part of this outstanding organization.

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.

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!

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.

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.
