This is my niece and nephew in law who started this awesome nonprofit basically to give back to the cancer community since my great niece Lauren has been in remission from leukemia after being diagnosed at age 2 1/2. They are dedicated to give HOPE to these families and have a day of making fun family memories. Thank you to Hooked On Hope VB for all your time and efforts❣️

My wife and I have volunteered for two multi family fishing events at a local pond. At the fishing event there was not only fishing and going out on a canoe, but there was a professional face painter, balloon artist, crafts and a yummy barbecue lunch. It was a very rewarding day helping pediatric cancer families catch not only fish but a day of fun filled memories. The smiles we saw melted our hearts!!
