The Hope Tree Project

Change a life! Give the gift of HOPE!


Ellen_HopeTree“Hope is a priceless gift…as a Stage 4 breast cancer patient in active treatment since 2003, my desire was simply to share that gift with women who due to lack of adequate health care coverage or finances lack the hope of access to this life-saving screening. My husband and priceless caregiver, Mark, also profoundly understands this need…which is why I knew there could be no gift he would cherish more this Christmas than a donation made on his behalf to fund a mammogram and potentially save the life of someone’s mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, aunt or friend!” —Ellen Stephenson, Ellen earned her wings June 2012.

EWWTA_logoEllen’s Walk With The Angels is a tribute to an amazing woman, friend, fighter and hero. As proud members of the Ellen’s Walk With the Angels team, we offer admiration, praise, and everlasting thanks to the most courageous – and contagious – inspiration we have the honor to know and love.

Ellen found out she had breast cancer in 2003, and she spent the next nine years living life to the fullest.  ”She just refused to let cancer bring her down,” her friend Robin Maynard said.

Kind Words of Appreciation from Recipients

I met the Founder of Libby’s Legacy when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer. I wanted you all to know that at my companies Year End Party we raised funds for women who are in need of mammograms and can’t afford them. We are mailing a check to Libby’s Legacy for the Hope Tree Project in the amount of $360.00 from Wayne Automatic Fire Sprinklers. My friend Jeanne Gey and I both are cancer free today because of our early detection from a mammogram. We wanted others within our community who were not a fortunate as ourselves to have an opportunity to be screened. Wayne Automatic Fire Sprinklers, like your organizaiton, is in the business of saving lives and we all know that it takes one day at a time to make a difference.

“In this season of giving, people look forward to buying the greatest of gifts for their friends and loved ones. I can think of no better gift than to honor someone in giving the gift of hope and life. Because of someone who cared, my life has been given a second chance. I received my free mammogram from Libby’s Legacy in Feb 2009 and now my breast cancer is being treated. These “seeds of kindness” saved my life.”
