Our Mission is to bring dignity and comfort into the harsh world of childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Why We Are Here
Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels is a nonprofit, support and educational organization designated by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-deductible, tax-exempt organization, founded in 2012 in celebration of Amanda Hope’s life.
During her three-year fight with leukemia and nine-month battle with a brain tumor, Amanda Hope dreamed that one day she would design a fun clothing line for kids just like her that would provide comfort and dignity during chemo treatments. Amanda’s life ended all too soon but her dream lives on through our Comfycozy’s for Chemo apparel and her legacy continues with our expansion of programs and services.
Amanda Hope was a special little girl, the type of child who lit up the room with her smile. At the age of nine she started experiencing severe headaches and flu-like symptoms. After several tests it was confirmed that Amanda had leukemia. The phone call confirming the diagnosis would forever change the lives of Amanda and her family.
It took three long years of chemotherapy to finally go into remission. Celebrations were had, a huge “No More Chemo Party” attended by family, friends, nurses and doctors. She went back to school and started to enjoy life again. Then, one afternoon, three months later, Amanda mentioned she wasn’t feeling well. A battery of tests discovered she had a mass in her brain. Another painful journey of chemo and radiation began. Throughout it Amanda’s spirits never waned. She kept smiling and expressing her concern and caring for the other children in the hospital.
On March 30, 2012, 11:29am, Amanda Hope lost her battle to Leukemia. In her honor, we are carrying out her vision of giving some dignity back to our children with something as simple as a shirt designed for them.
