Students from the University of St. Thomas have designed backpacks and other apparel that serve to act as a literal representation of helping all people to keep Holding HOPE. For every item that you buy, another filled with HOPE will be given to a child at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. The bags and other apparel will allow the children to carry and conceal their EKG’s, heart monitors, and belongings. Holding HOPE continues to come up with new ways to bring greater awareness to the subject of pediatric cancer. The organization also brings normality to the life of the children with pediatric cancer with monthly gifts that include Holding HOPE apparel, toys, and hand made cards. We, as a Holding HOPE Team, strive to fight for our heroes down at Mayo with the help of those in our community.
