Rosie's Love Shortly after two-year-old Rosemary Frances Johnson passed away from neuroblastoma, a childhood cancer, her family decided they wanted to give something back for all the love Rosie received while being treated for her illness at Albany Medical Center

21 years ago today, our sweet Rosie gained her angel wings. Even though we, her family, still mourn her loss, we are so grateful that we have been able to share her love with so many through the years. Thank you to all our volunteers, families, friends, and sponsors who have helped us keep Rosie's memory alive. Even though Rosie is no longer with us, she lives on in all of you. Thank you! ❤️😇

This was Monday when we were at 58 families but the wish lists are still coming and we are filling as fast as possible. Thank you to everyone who donated gifts and cash. Thank you also for the volunteers who helped shop and wrap. With covid it was different this year but we were still able to put smiles on (under those masks!). It is an honor do this and I will continue until there is no more childhood cancer. Peace, joy, happiness and most of all health to all my Facebook friends. ❤️

Every year Rosie’s Love Foundation gives patients at the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at the Bernard & Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Med the chance to “shop” free of charge for holiday presents for their parents and siblings. With visitor restrictions in place amid the coronavirus pandemic this season, Rosie’s Love decided to provide 58 Melodies children and their families beautifully wrapped individual gifts. Since its inception in 2000, Rosie’s Love has provided emotional, practical and financial support to those with childhood cancer. From left, Allison Gettino, Albany Med social worker; Mary Beth Nichols, Albany Med certified child life specialist; and Pat Hedgeman, co-founder, Rosie’s Love. Also pictured, Nichols with Melodies Center patient Portia Robles, 6, of Broadalbin. Thank you, Rosie’s Love Foundation, for your generous donation!

We would like to thank the following people for their loving donation to Rosie’s Love. These are tough times, but people like these remind us all that in the tough times good people rise to help! The donations will be used to purchase items off the children’s wish lists. On behalf of all the children, we at Rosie’s Love would like to say thank you!

Some of our elves wrapping presents. We’ve now completed almost 30 wish lists! But the lists are still coming. Let us know if you would like to donate items, or “adopt” a list to shop for.

Due to Covid19, our holiday shop looks very different this year. We are unable to go into the hospital and set up our shop like we do every year. However, we are not letting these kids down!

Each kid is being asked to fill out a wish list: who they want to shop for, and what they might like. We are then taking those wish lists and shopping for them! Once their list is complete, we wrap the gifts and deliver them to the hospital. The next time they arrive for clinic, they get to take home their gifts.

We have already completed 20 wish lists! But there are still many many more we need to do! We are still looking for gift donations (things for mom, dad, siblings, grandparents, and pets), as well as wrapping paper, tape, gift tags, ribbons, etc... If you are interested, reach out to us and ask about how to "adopt" a family and shop a specific wish list. And as always, monetary donations are always appreciated.

Please text Grandma Pat (518-951-0110) for arrangements for pick up or drop off of gift donations. Checks can be mailed to Rosie's Love c/o Pat Hedgeman 16 Locust Park Albany, NY 12205.

With the current coronavirus, and our children being immune compromised, the doctors are questioning if any of them will be able to return to a classroom. It may be home schooling for awhile, but the kids will have the supplies they need!

We are starting to get our back to school backpack program together, but we need your help! Pens, pencils, crayons, markers, notebooks, paper, binders, glue sticks, rulers, erasers, backpacks, etc... we need it all! This program is more important then ever since these kids, and their families, can not go out and buy these supplies themselves. Please send us a message on here, or reach out to Grandma Pat, if you are interested in helping out ❤️
