CHOC Children's Basket of Hope Delivery with NFL Players Association

CHOC is partnering with Basket of Hope, NFL Players Association Orange County Vice President, Dave Des Rochers, and other local community organizations to give the gift of HOPE to families with children coping with serious illnesses through the personal delivery of a Basket of Hope. 


What is Basket of Hope?

Basket of Hope started in 1995 in St. Louis, MO after Christina, age 6 completed cancer treatment. Her Mom, Angela Brunette, was asked by hospital staff to visit with and encourage patients and their families who were newly diagnosed.  Angela then began gathering items that were helpful to her during their time in the hospital and started what is now Basket of Hope, a 501c3 non-profit organization.  

The organization is now serving over 50 hospitals nationwide thanks to Tony Dungy, NFL Hall of Fame Recipient, and Riley Hospital for Children. During Super Bowl week in Indianapolis, over 1,000 volunteers assembled 7,000 Super Baskets of Hope along with 7,000 Hope Totes; shipped them to 32 NFL cities; and local NFL players delivered the gifts to hospitalized children and their parents.
