Jimmy Fund Clinic patient designs beautiful bag for HomeGoods
Jimmy Fund Clinic patient Kate is a sparkling 7-year-old who loves drawing and princesses. Her family even calls her “Princess Kate” because she loves to wear dresses; jeans are not “fancy enough” for her.
When she’s not busy spending time with her stuffed dog Butterscotch or playing with her first grade class at the Brimmer and May school in Chestnut Hill, Mass., Kate loves to draw. She makes sure that her mother carries an extra set of markers with her everywhere they go.
“We were recently out to breakfast and Kate spent the entire meal drawing a picture for an 18-month-old girl at the table next to us,” Kate’s father, David said.
Kate loves sharing her artwork with everyone she meets, including the staff at Dana-Farber’s Jimmy Fund Clinic where she is undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
Her artistic talent and unique, colorful style made her the perfect candidate to draw the 2015 artwork for the annual HomeGoods Help Families Fight Cancer initiative. Kate’s dazzling HomeGoods shopping bag features brightly-colored blossoming flowers—her favorite thing to draw.
This beautiful bag is currently available for purchase at participating HomeGoods. From now until the end of June, a portion of the proceeds from Kate’s bag will help support cancer research and patient care at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
HomeGoods and the Jimmy Fund have been united in the fight against cancer since 2001. The HomeGoods Helps Families Fight Cancer campaign has raised millions to support patient care and research at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.
