The mission of Lucy’s Love Bus™ is to:
- deliver comfort and quality of life to pediatric cancer patients by providing funds for free integrative therapies, and
- offer young people lifelong lessons in leadership and service to others through philanthropy.
Lucy Grogan was 8 years old when she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. Throughout Lucy's long illness, concerned individuals like you raised money to help support Lucy. Lucy learned about the benefits of integrative therapies such as massage, acupuncture, art therapy, and therapeutic horseback riding during her treatment.
When Lucy was 11, she told her mother that when she was "done with cancer" she wanted to start a program that would provide free integrative therapies to all children with cancer to help manage the side effects and late effects of traditional cancer treatment. Since 2006, our generous supporters have helped us deliver love and comfort to over 500 children with cancer.
