Together in 2013 we built a garden for a Piper Novak in Deer Park, IL who wished for a vegetable garden.
Cals Angels Granting Wishes!
It’s been a long journey for Piper and her family. Piper, was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in June 2010 at the age of 2 ½. Piper began chemotherapy. Shortly thereafter, Piper lost all of her curly baby hair, did not eat solid food for four months and lost her voice as a result of the chemotherapy’s intensity.
"Yesterday was a very special and fun day for our family... The awesome folks at Cal's Angels (a local organization that grants wishes to kids fighting cancer in memory of Cal Sutter), with the generous help of Michael E. Hogg, supreme gardener, and his volunteer crew, made Piper's wish for her very own vegetable garden come true! It took us a long time to think of something that Piper would enjoy for many years to come and we think she made the perfect wish! Thank you Michael, Cal's Angels and Stacey Skjoldager Sutter for giving the gift of healthy eating to Piper! She had a wonderful time getting dirty and is anxiously awaiting the arrival of her veggies!" J. Novak
Thank you for your support.
