2015 Toy Drive - Drop Off at Star Studio


This years toy drive was successful in many ways.  We dropped off the toys that people donated from Clearwater, St. Cloud, and Sartell.   Also a large cash donation was given to cover other items that are needed by Star Studio ad their awesome staff.   

We also had some HUGE help from the Vikings World Order.   They are group of very serious Vikings football fans and are very active throughout the area.  They had 2 locations for a toy drive this year and purchased a bunch of other toys with cash donations.

This beautiful book was written by Kayleen's Grandpa and illustrated by her Aunt.



During 2012 and 2013 my 9-year-old granddaughter fought a 14-month battle with leukemia. I was one of the care givers. And for a time, I was virtually deaf when I came down with an ear and sinus infection for which I took some heavy drugs


During this time I was recording my dreams as well as I could remember them. All all of the poems in the manuscript were written during these two years and most if not all have their genesis in dream images or are dream-like in their images.

Beat AML

Tomorrow will mark the 2 year anniversary of learning that Kayleen's leukemia had relapsed. In the 20 years prior to that day there had been no significant breakthroughs in treatment of AML, the kind of leukemia Kayleen had. Since that day a growing awareness of the need to target this aggressive and deadly type of leukemia has come about. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society has initiated an effort to fund innovative treatments for AML, called Beat AML. Kayleen's parents were excited to learn of this initiative!

This Thanksgiving we are grateful for all of our sponsors, board members, and for All Of You who have helped to make our fundraising successful.  You help us to continue to support children with pediatric cancer and to continue help fund research towards beating pediatric cancer.

We are excited to announce our first donation from this years fundraising! 


The Kayleen Larson Legacy Foundation will be donating $5000 to the LLS -- Beat AML initiative in Kayleen’s honor. 

A donation in this amount means we can say all funds must go to research, not admin or overhead.
