Community Involvement

I am currently and have been the Iowa Branch Coordinator for a non-profit ministry called Basket of Hope since 2003.  www.basketofhope.org Basket of Hope is a nationwide ministry that delivers Christian based baskets to children and their families who are suffering from cancer and other life threatening illnesses.  In addtion, we deliver baskets to women diagnosed with breast cancer through Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids and to familes who have suffered the loss of an infant or stilborn.

I became involved in 2003 when my youngest daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia.  I decided I needed to turn our pain & suffering into something larger than ourselves.  I had a vision for doing a ministry event back in Marion where we lived.  I had an idea to include Kurt & Brenda Warner (personal friends & NFL football player for the Rams at the time in St. Louis).

When I contacted them with my thoughts I learned that they were already involved with Basket of Hope in St. Louis for the last 4 years.  My vision became a realty when we began to deliver baskets to the University of Iowa Children's Hospital a few weeks later.  Nine months later we were able to kick off our first fundraiser for Basket of Hope Iowa with a dinner auction with Kurt & Brenda Warner as our guest speakers.

Ten years later we are still going strong and have delivered over 3000 baskets to children & their families in Iowa.

I am also involved with The Variety Club-The Children's Charity.
