Today was a special day for some children at Our Lady of the Lake Children’s Hospital.
Those children are dealing with cancer and representatives from LSU brought “Baskets of Hope” to the young patients at the hospital.
The special guests at today’s event included:
- Kelly Orgeron
- LSU head football coach Ed Orgeron
- Seven football student-athletes
- Mike the Tiger
- Spirit Squad members
As you might have guessed, the ‘Baskets of Hope’ had an LSU National Championship theme.
Organizers describe the mission of the ‘Baskets of Hope’ in this way,
to give hope to children diagnosed with cancer or other serious illness through the delivery of a Basket of Hope filled with toys, games, craft items, stuffed animals, gift cards and other items.
The parents of the young cancer patients also had the chance to receive ‘Hope Totes.’
Hope Totes “contain gifts to nourish them physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually,” according to organizers.
The event took place from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.
