2019 Partnerships

William’s Warriors is thrilled to announce a 2019 (and hopefully beyond) partnership with Love Your Melon. On a mission to improve the lives of children facing cancer, Love Your Melon began with the simple idea of putting a hat on every child battling cancer in America.  After achieving the original goal of giving 45,000 hats — one for every child fighting cancer in America — Love Your Melon set a new goal of giving one million dollars to pediatric cancer research and providing immediate support to children and their families.  Love Your Melon quickly exceeded these expectations, and to date, LYM has given over 6.1 million dollars to the fight against pediatric cancer and over 160,000 hats to children battling cancer.  Fifty percent (50%) of net profit from the sale of all Love Your Melon products is given to the Love Your Melon Fund to support nonprofit partners in the fight against pediatric cancer, create therapeutic experiences, and fund charitable programming initiatives for children and families battling cancer. 

 

William’s Warriors is honored to have been selected as one of Love Your Melon's nonprofit partners.  Love Your Melon has generously given a $10,000 grant to William’s Warriors with the focus on pediatric brain cancer research.  We cannot thank Love Your Melon enough for supporting our efforts.  William’s Superhero Fund is a rescue mission that William would have been proud of leading – to save other kids’ lives.  When William was diagnosed, there were no options for treatment other than a toxic chemo regiment, which had no targeting capability. This approach is outdated and unsuccessful. This fund is dedicated to changing this reality for the children battling brain cancer.  The money raised by William’s Superhero Fund supports childhood cancer research in the laboratory of Robert Wechsler-Reya, Ph.D., SBP scientist and world-renowned expert on medulloblastoma.  Dr. Wechsler-Reya is dedicated to translating his scientific discoveries into therapies that can improve the lives of children with cancer.  Thanks to the generosity of Love Your Melon, William’s legacy lives on and Dr. Wechsler-Reya will be able to continue his groundbreaking research in finding a cure for pediatric brain cancer.

 

Stay tuned for more exciting updates about the Love Your Melon and William’s Warriors partnership throughout the year.  Thank you, Love Your Melon!

IMPACT : 2018
In our first year as a nonprofit we donated $15,000 to William's Superhero Fund with Wechsler-Reya lab at the Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute for medulloblastoma/brain cancer research. William's Heart-Works sent 75 Creative Care Packages all over the United States to children undergoing cancer treatment so that they could have access to art therapy at home. Finally, William's Warriors delivered seasonal art /craft supplies for winter holidays, Valentine's day, Spring, 4th of July, Halloween and Thanksgiving as well as bulk supply delivery in September keeping our art cart stocked at Cohen Children's Medical Center. General art supplies were also sent to Stony Brook Children's Hospital, NYU Winthrop, "Draw It Out " books for Hospice Care Network and fall art supplies for the Ronald McDonald House. 

Impact : 2017

With your help, William's Chalk the Walk and Be a Hero T-shirt Campaign raised $11,382.00 for medulloblastoma research! We collected art supplies for Stony Brook Children's Hospital, Cohen Children's Medical Center and the Hospice Care Network! In addition, CCMC received an art-cart and the Hospice Care Network received Art with Heart art therapy books! Starting 2018, we have added the NYU Winthrop Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House to our recipient members list. In January 2018  we began sending Creative Care Packages to children undergoing cancer treatment. 
Way To Go Heroes!!!!

Chalking It Up Against Childhood Cancer

The 3rd Annual William’s Chalk the Walk was a beautiful day blessed with a brilliant blue sky and hundreds of people taking a stand against Childhood Cancer! All over the United States Love Your Melon Campus Crews joined us in "Chalking It Up" to spread awareness. At the Blue Point Nature Preserve, artists of all ages made their mark on the path of the park. The collection of artistic expressions turned the park into a beautiful work of art, a patchwork of love and goodwill.
The day was made possible by all our incredible sponsors. With their support, our dream of providing 75 -1st time Admission kits to our local hospitals will become a reality! Thank you to Kwik Stix for providing their amazing products for each package! A special shout out to Encore Rentals for their gorgeous tents and seating which provided the perfect area for the raffles, DJ Drago and Carly’s Kindness Corner. We would like to also thank the incredible businesses and individuals who donated to our raffle, which had over 70 opportunities for our participants to win as well as the incredible Food Trucks who joined us for this special event: Eat Me, Drink Me, Dessert On the Spot and Kona Ice. Thank you to our amazing special guests: Wendy the Pipe Cleaner Lady, Massage therapist Peg Luque, and the Saber Guild: Endor Temple. Thank you to the William’s Warriors Members and volunteers who made the day such a fantastic success! Without you, none of this would be possible.
As September, Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, comes to end today, let us remember that childhood cancer does not. Every day more children are diagnosed and have their childhoods violently altered. Many suffer terrible side effects from treatment, sometimes even causing death or secondary cancers. Every day, children are dying from cancer. Those who survive face a lifetime of side effects and fear of relapse. Science is making progress. But with only 4% of the NCI budget going to pediatric cancer….It is not enough! Thank you for helping to make an impact on research with SBP's Williams Superhero Fund supporting the work of Robert Wechsler Reya and quality of life for these children in and out of the hospital through art therapy.
Finally, thank you to William and all the children who are or who have been in this fight, for touching the lives of so many and helping us to tap into the Super Hero in all of us.
