Help Us Fill Baskets

The idea is to fill baskets with things that would support these families fighting cancer, so they can have more time with each other. We want to fill the basket with practical items such as gas cards, restaurant cards, grocery cards, and fun things like movie gift cards, toy store gift cards, and massages for the parents, and anything to help serve the whole family.

The biggest way you can help is by sharing our story.  If you are moved and inspired to help please start by sharing with family and friends.   Coming soon a Baskets of Love Shop where profits go towards filling the baskets.

Our Story

 Baskets of love starts back in 1994 when my sister Monica Polanco was diagnosed with cancer of the muscle tissue.  Although she was 17, her diagnosis was considered a children's cancer and we were in the children’s cancer ward.  During her three year battle, we became a part of the all the families battling cancer and we lost many friends along the way.  It was heartbreaking.  Monica lost her battle to cancer in 1997.   As I was going through the grief process, I knew I wanted to find a way to support other families during those hard years of battling cancer. Hoping families can spend more time with their children and making sure the whole family feels supported.
