Pets need comfort too 03/09/2023

Our incredible dog had to have a tumor removal in December. The doctor was phenomenal but our dog was sent home with a cone on his head and looking very sad. We decided we wanted to make him feel like the amazing boy he is. Once his cone was removed, we replaced it with a Superhero cape and cozy pillow to relax on. You could see his confidence and comfort come back right away. We decided to make and deliver dog capes and comfort pillows to other dogs (and even cats) who need a cape and pillow after surgery to remind them of how amazing they are. If you know a dog or cat who could use a comfort pillow and/or cape, we'd be happy to make one for them.

Request a pillow or cape!

Volunteers Making Port Pillows for Cancer Patients 03/04/2023

Had a great day with great volunteers making port pillows for cancer patients. After mastectomy surgy the seatbelt can irritate your surgery incisions. The pillow is for post surgery to protect surgery incisions and sore sites while you drive. We decided to make these because a lot of time people forget their larger mastectomy pillow when they drive. These strap onto the seat belt so it is almost impossible to forget them. you can keep them strapped on the seatbelt for travel and have a larger mastectomy pillow that stays in your house.

Santas Workshop 12/11/2022

We had a wonderful day building and helping at Santa's workshop. We set up magical scenes and helped kids have an amazing time with Santa, a real reindeer, a hot cocoa booth and games. The highlight was seeing all the tutus we personally made being bought and 100% of the proceeds going to Children's Hospital. Kids loved dancing around and having a wonderful time in them. Elsa herself loved them and bought one for herself. There is no better way to spend the holidays than bringing love and joy to those who need it. We enjoy seeing the true meaning of the holidays around us as it is always filled with love and beauty.

Children's Hospital Plano playground opening reception 09/24/2022

It was wonderful to be able to see Children's outdoor playground. The hospital is expanding and has added a beautiful space for kids to play safely outside. It is an awesome addition as kids don't have to stay in a hospital room all day. They can get treatment and run around outside. For kids that do not have a lot of energy to run, there are gentle swings and areas to sit. When siblings come to visit they can also play on the playground. Children's is amazing and always coming up with innovative ways to make life better for kids.

Volunteer Mckinney 08/25/2022

Lisa Hatfield nominated for Volunteer of the Year in McKinney, TX

"It was such an honor to be a part of the Volunteer Mckinney Gala. To be nominated as 'Volunteer of the Year' and to be surrounded with amazing people is humbling and my heart is filled with so much gratitude. An extraordinary lady named Donna Loughmiller was honored with Volunteer of the year and she is extremely deserving of it."
"The nomination itself was such an honor. The room was filled with awe inspiring youth through seasoned retirees to doctors who spend their time serving others. There were organizations that lift up special needs kids with love and enthusiasm as well as groups that ensure the elderly in the communities are cared for and feel loved and supported. It was such a beautiful night and a wonderful way to acknowledge all the good that is around us."

Lunchboxes with Love 06/25/2021

What a wonderful week! It's been a long year and a half but we are back to doing what we love. We spent time making comfort boxes and bringing them to Texas Oncology and Children's Hospital. It was so wonderful to be able to visit with the patients at Texas Oncology again and bring a little sunshine to their day. Seeing their smile while going through treatment is something that always warms our heart.

We ALWAYS love being able to also put together love for the sweet kids at Children's. They are warriors who inspire everyone. It always lifts our souls when we are able to bring a little love to others going through tough times.

Naty, we remember you 05/26/2018

We made a cape in honor of a super nice lady. We are giving the cape to her husband in honor of her memory. We first met Naty when we had our first lemonade stand. She told us how she was fighting breast cancer. We became friends and would visit each other. She alway came to all of our lemonade stands and would drink lemonade and talk with us. She also liked taking pictures with us.

She always made us laugh and called us her babies. Then she would tell us to wear more sunscreen. We know she loved flowers and thats why we made her hair with flowers on the cape. She also was a mom and a wife and we put those symbols on the cape. Her nick name was navidad so we put an angel on the cape. We put lemonade on it because thats where we first met her. We also got a pink rose plant for her family to have in honor of her. Im very sad that she is gone but I know she in heaven so thats good and makes me happier that she's with angels.

Texas Oncology Holidays 11/22/2017

Today we had an awesome morning. We brought lots of pillows, creatures and cozy gloves for the patients at Texas Oncology to give them comfort. The trip was very special because our mom had treatment during this time of year. The treatment made her not be able to taste, smell, or eat. I remember she was in a lot of pain. We know how hard it is for everyone getting treatment. It must be extra hard during Thanksgiving and all the holidays. What was super awesome was we saw two girls who remembered us from our last visit. They came and gave us big hugs. One girl said we came on her very first treatment and today was her last treatment. She was so super sweet. She showed us pictures of us she took last time because she saved them. That made us so happy. We also gave everyone Star Wars lollipops and they loved them. Our hearts know how much pain all cancer patients must be in and we love them and hope they get some happiness and peace.

Give the gift of gloves 11/12/2017

This Thanksgiving and Christmas season we are going to give gloves with every pillow creature we make. We know how cold it can get and wanted to bring extra comfort and love to everyone fighting cancer this time of year. All the gloves we made have symbols of love and hope that we put on them. We hope these gloves will keep cancer patients warm and toasty during the cold months to come.

Super Hero day 10/27/2017

Today was such a great day. At our school, the theme was dress up like your favorite super hero. Since an oncologist saves lives every day, we decided to dressed up like an oncologist. Juliet and I both dressed up like an pediatric oncologist, and Camille dressed up like a normal oncologist. After school we went to Children's Hospital. The first cape is for a very special friend who fought cancer for a long time and won. She is my super hero and friend. It will be my honor to give her a super hero cape tomorrow. The second cape we made is for a wonderful grandma who lives close to us and has been fighting cancer for a very long time. The last cape is for a kid in Children's Hospital. All cancer fighters are our super heroes.

Superhero Day at Beverly Elementary 10/27/2017

Today was superhero day at school. These precious sisters CamilleChloe-Juliet Hatfield are my HEROES for killing Cancer with kindness!!! Thank you Carol Perry for letting me borrow your cape!

Cancer awareness month 09/02/2017

September is childhood cancer awareness month. It's very sad that kids gets cancer. I can't imagine how brave the kids must be to fight cancer everyday. We've been working all week making capes for kids who have cancer to remind them that they are super hero's. We even made gold capes because thats childhood cancer color. We pray for every child who is suffering cancer.

Cancer Warrior 07/27/2017

We had the immense blessing of finally meeting this wonderful man. He is fighting a super rare triple cancer and is literally a warrior!!! He was a teacher and superintendent, but is also a dad, grandpa, husband and animal lover. He is even in super good shape so cancer doesn't care who you are. He gave his blessing to share this and we cant stop thinking or praying for him. His wife is also so super nice and was a fourth grade teacher! We love fourth grade teachers!!! It feels like we were just in a dream because this family is so wonderful and loving yet they have to have cancer. We pray that the doctors are able to take the cancer away and that he gets comfort and love during his treatment!

Rainy Day Lemonade 07/01/2017

Thank you you so so much to everyone who came to our rainy lemonade stand!!!!! We had to move it inside but it was still great. We got to see some awesome neighbors, teachers and friends. It was so funny because my mom would scream when she saw someone and start hugging them before we could. Thank you! And thank you to everyone who always loves our creatures we make!!!!

Children's 03/06/2017

We had such an awesome morning! Not only is it Spring break but we got to go to Children's today! We brought a box of creatures for the sweet kids there and we made capes for them! We drew out one of the creatures we made and put it on capes and wrote Super Hero on it. Any person who fights cancer is a real life super hero thats why we made these. Hopefully the creatures give the kids comfort and the cape makes them realize they are amazing and have Super Powers to fight cancer! We also got to go to the Children's Story Tree play ground again and had so much fun blowing away in the wind. HA HA. It was so windy and fun. Oh my goodness and then we met Flora!!!!! Flora is a service dog who visits kids. She is the sweetest dog ever. We pet her for a long time and got to throw her ball and walk her down the hall. What an amazing Spring Break Monday!

Lemonade Friends 02/12/2017

Thank you to everyone who came to our lemonade stand yesterday. At the stand we met the sweetest, adorablest lady ever. Her name is Navida like Christmas in Spanish. She came to get lemonade and a creature to lay on for treatment. She has stage 4 breast cancer and needs all our prayers. Navida just started treatment and is in a lot of pain. Please everyone she asks to be put on your prayer list. Please pray for sweet Navida and her family so she will be in little pain and be ok. Seriously, she is so sweet. It makes us sad that she is in pain.
