"In February 2019, our world was shattered. We heard the words "Diffuse Midline Glioma" and were told our previously healthy 8 year old daughter had 9 months to live."
The summer Olivia was fighting her incurable cancer she organized her first fundraiser and Liv like a Unicorn was born. She raised over $10,000 to help fund the clinical trial she was a part of. Read that again: she had to organize a fundraiser to help fund the medication that we hoped would slow down the growth of her cancer.
All of this started with a child's simple dream: kids deserved better. They deserved to live.
Explore the many ways that we support the pediatric cancer community and find ways to join us. May you always #bethegood and Liv Like A Unicorn.
THREE MAIN AREAS OF SUPPORT
The inspiration for our Unicorn Box program started in 2019 while Liv was going through treatment. Every Thursday night would be chemo night, so every Thursday morning she would wake up dreading the day. That was until a friend started to drop little packages on our doorstep every Thursday morning. The narrative started to switch from Liv dreading Thursdays to being excited to see what treat was left for her.
We wanted to do the same for every child going through pediatric cancer treatment.
