“You can find magic wherever you look. Sit back and relax, all you need is a book” – Dr. Seuss
While Gabby was hospitalized for her cancer diagnosis, one activity that gave her comfort was being read to. She enjoyed the affection of someone being cuddled up with her reading her a story. For that moment, she was able to escape and forget about the treatments or even that she was stuck in a hospital bed during the middle of summer.
Since inception, the foundation has collected over 5,000 new books to provide to Oncology patients at hospitals nationwide. These books have reached over 12 different hospitals, some for multiple years; we continue to reach new hospitals and patients through this program.
New books can be sent to the foundation at PO Box 555 Ocean View, DE 19970. Donations can also be made through our Pay pal link or through gift cards. To order through Amazon, please view our wish list, order, and send directly to the foundation address. These are just suggested books; please choose ones that you are fond of as well. Don’t forget to log in under Amazon Smile and choose The Get Well Gabby Foundation as your charity of choice.
