CEO & FOUNDER OF DOLLIES FOR DOCTORS
When my 6 children were little we participated in a toy drive. As I took them to the store we walked down the doll aisle. I watched as they each picked up the dollies and hugged them. I knew that not every child has the opportunity to have a dollie of their own...and from that moment on I was on a mission to help make that happen.
Each year over 3 million children are hospitalized in the U.S alone. Along with that, children make up the largest population of those living in poverty.
With our focus centered around nurturing and compassion, Dollies 4 Doctors is on a mission to help these children soothe their fears. Our dollies provide the children comfort, joy in times when they might need a friend the most.
We provide handmade custom dollies that allow the Doctors to bandage, stitch, and or mark the same places the children are being treated -giving them a companion to not only cuddle but to care for during their traumatic time. We also provide dollies though our projects and toy drives to impoverished children, providing them with a way to reduce anxiety and feel comforted.
