An Executive Directors New Challenge
Lorraine Tallman’s daughter Amanda fought cancer for over 3 years beginning with leukemia and then a brain tumor. Throughout their journey, Amanda dreamed of starting a fun clothing line for kids that allowed them to remain comfortable during their chemo treatments. While Amanda’s life ended too soon, her dream lives on through the Comfycozy’s for Chemo apparel she created. Lorraine knows the challenges families undergoing treatment face daily so she set out to keep Amanda’s memory alive and make a difference in the lives of families going through a similar journey.
Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels was born to support, assist, educate, and advocate for children and families battling childhood cancer and other life-threatening illnesses. It is a celebration of Amanda’s life and her desire to help other kids just like her. Through their programs, they help relieve the burden on families, help them work through the traumatic moments of a cancer diagnosis and journey, and celebrate important milestones. Childhood cancer doesn’t take a break because of a global pandemic, but Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels are here to help.
Like many nonprofits during the pandemic, Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels has faced new challenges. They have seen an increased need for additional services during the pandemic and have had to come up with new ways to help these families. Luckily, they haven’t had to turn anyone away. As part of our Power of Charms Podcast and Video Series, Kay spoke to Lorraine about the challenges they have faced, their participation in Key to Strength, and their upcoming Night of Hope Gala.
