Inspiring Good Cookie Stories...

Ally Hoffman

Inspired by Liam Witt's courageous battle with cancer, Ally began dedicating her birthday to Cookies for Kids' Cancer when she turned 9. She was so excited to know she was helping make a difference. Ally has asked for donations for childhood cancer research instead of gifts for her past four birthdays, and continues to keep up the tradition every year.

Olivia

Olivia celebrated her 10th birthday in 2014 by asking her friends and family to make a donation to Cookies for Kids' Cancer. Proving you're never too young to make a difference, she served cookies at her party and in total, her efforts raised $820 for childhood cancer research!
