Letters of Support

"Having been involved with Basket of Hope for 6 years, I have come to realize how important it is to not only offer support for the patients, but for the parents as well.  It's easy to be a big fan of Basket of Hope."  Sean Payton, Payton's Play if Forward Foundation

"One of the most beautiful aspects of BOH for me as a child life specialist is the quality of items given to patients and families and how thoughtfully they are put together. We have patients of all abilities and BOH takes the time to recognize the developmentally different ways our patients are able to play, learn, and find comfort.  We promote family centered care, and BOH recognizes that with each child there is likely an exhausted caregiver that needs strength to provide for their own. BOH provides for caregivers' comfort, and their empathy is very powerful thing to see.  Also, it's pretty powerful to see a family at a clinic visit or coming to say "hi" on the unit, and the caregiver is wearing a Hope heart necklace given to them in their hope totes weeks, months, or years before. Those necklaces unite our families in a way. No matter the diagnosis or medical journey that they are on, they have hope in common."   - Whitney Alford, MS,CCLS, Child Life Coordinator, Ochsner Hospital for Children
