Anna May’s Hope
Our Mission is to bring joy to children undergoing cancer treatment in the form of Anna May’s Hope – the gift of a snugly bear coupled with a children’s book. Anna May, born in Harbor Springs, Michigan, lost her battle with cancer at the age of 14. Today her spirit lives on through Anna May’s Hope.
In 2019, 300 bears and books will be donated to U of M Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor.
The bears were made by Saint Luke’s North End Woman at the N.E.W. Life Center in Flint, Michigan. The Center provides a safe environment for survivors of abuse and poverty, giving individuals the access to learn and further their education with the help of our tutoring volunteers, along with teaching basic life skills to those who need it, encouraging them along the way and building their self-esteem, so that one day they become independent.
The books were donated by the Woman of Warwick Hills Golf and Country Club.
