Your stories are Our Stories

"Our daughter has a congenital heart defect and suffers from medical trauma. After receiving her beautiful custom gown and the little prizes also enclosed, she said, "Oh! When do I get to go to the cardiologist?! I can't wait to wear this!"
This gown made my 6 year old daughter feel important, loved, special and heard. Thank you for giving her this bright spot in her sweet life."

Thank goodness for spring...

Those who have followed along on Facebook, and even a little on Instagram would have seen at least one post since January detailing the struggle of my back surgery and all the wonderful complications that occurred within a two month time span. The change in season almost brought about a change in our medical chaos as has definitely brought a new sense of hope and renewal to all aspects of our personal life and the life of the organization. Things have been slow, and we're behind on our normal request timeline, but as the days go by more is able to be accomplished. We are a small operation...but we are mighty!
Reading the review from Charlotte's mom reminded me just how real medical trauma is. It is something you cannot understand until you live it...and it is something I pray you never have to experience. There is nothing worse than having a panic attack over simply putting on a hospital gown because once again something is not right and needs to be fixed. That was me the middle of March getting a PICC Line replaced...and I'm almost 33 years old! Now imagine being a small child, or heck even a teenager and going through one medical procedure after another. We cannot fix the damage that has been done, but we can try to help heal some of it!

Coming Up Next...

Over the next several days and weeks, the goal is to get caught up and then work towards reopening the custom requests. I am still limited in my own capabilities, hence the slow process. We are launching an updated newborn gown size, and adding more fabrics to the in stock category as the gowns are cut and ready. This is where you'll be able to find a gown right now. Use the code AshleyGrace at the checkout to have the listed cost reduced to $10 or less depending on size and fabric type.  

Registration is Open!

Last year our biggest fundraiser was our Jeep Contest - this year we will have Jeeps and Trucks. Early registration is recommended. We are also looking for event sponsors for contest prizes and raffle items, in addition to volunteers throughout various aspects of the event. Check out the website for more information and additional links to help!

Everyday ways to support our Cause

On our Shop With Us page you will find a variety of face masks, PICC line covers, car decals, patches, bracelts, and more that are made with leftover fabric from gowns. The purchase of these items give us funds all year long to make and ship gowns with.
