The Story of the Socks
The infamous PIcture of the fashion choice that started this all. the day i was having my port put in before starting chemo, my nurse and my mom had a grand time of roasting me for my mismatching socks. my mom put this picture on our blog as she reported on my progress and within a few days, people started sending me fun socks to wear. once i started chemo, i realized how much warm socks were a necessity each treatment day and how fun socks could be in showing a little personality. above all, i realized how much it meant to get a package in the mail, knowing someone took the time to join me in this fight. and from all of that, the idea for Hallie’s hope was born.
Our hope is that each care package does three things :
One, reminds the recipient when they receive that teal package that they are never fighting alone
Two, allows them to keep warm on treatment days, while also showing off some personality
And three, give loved ones/friends an easy & meaningful way to do something when it’s often hard to know what to do with a cancer diagnosis/fight.
