This is the story of a Mother's love and the way she continues to honor her daughter's life. We are humbled to unveil our newest giving initiative supporting the Ella Mae's Courage Foundation providing superior diaper care products for pediatric cancer patients.
Ella Mae’s Courage Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization focused on providing funding for development of superior diaper care products for pediatric cancer patients. "Ella Mae" is the moniker of Leah Marie Anderson.
In January 2009 at the age of 3, Leah was diagnosed with Wilms Disease Stage IV. Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation began because she had a large tumor attached to her left kidney. In January 2012, she was transferred to the cancer survivor clinic and looked forward to starting the second grade. But in July 2012 she was diagnosed again with cancer, AML to be exact: a nasty form of leukemia. AML is extremely rare for Wilms survivors. For a second time, she was admitted to the hospital. Leah was 6 years old. Her incredible journey of faith, courage, and love is chronicled in the book Greater Acts than These by her mother and friend. Leah lost her battle to AML on January 10, 2013, but her legacy lives on through the Ella Mae’s Courage. Leah inspired so many with her positive and uplifting attitude and her love and care for others. Leah’s incredible journey of faith, courage and love continues to inspire others to see and create beautiful.
