Abby's Purple Bag Project Brings Gift Bags of Cheer To Cancer Patients
When Abby Warren's grandmother was being treated for breast cancer, instead of birthday gifts she wanted the family to give gifts to other cancer patients. Abby's project to deliver gift bags of snacks, books and homemade get well cards turned into a mission as the five-year-old got "hooked on helping." Abby's Purple Bag Project now has a Facebook page to spread the word from their Nevada home, complete with a suggested shopping list so other groups can make their own gift bags for cancer patients in their state. Why the color purple? It's her grandmother's favorite color.
