The purpose of Addy's Giving Heart is to provide small individual boxes of toys and crafts to sick children in the hospital. My Daughter Addy got her Angel wings on Febuary 24th 2013, Addy truly had a giving Heart, she always thought of others before herself and always had a smile on her face even during lengthy hospital stays. Addy had a stroke as a baby and later developed seizures as a result of the stroke. Most people don't know that children can have strokes, babies can have strokes and even unborn babies can have strokes. Over the years Addys seizures became quite severe, Her Doctors were in the process of doing testing to see if she might be a candidate for Brain surgery. There hopes were to be able to remove the spot that was causing the seizures. Addy continued to have a smile on her face even with everything that she had to endure. Addy still continued to think of others before herself, I can remember at time when she was at the hospital she had a bit of a rough day with seizures and we were taking a stroll around the pediatric unit and she saw a little boy riding in a wagon, she wanted to know if we could give him one of her toys. With Addy's Giving Heart we hope to be able to keep Addys legacy of giving live on and spread Kindness one small box at a time. you can find us on facebook https://www.facebook.com/AddysGivingHeart and here is our website addysgivingheart.com .
