After gaining weight from the chemotherapy, she donated her brand new back-to-school clothes to two girls who had recently lost everything in a fire. This act of kindness inspired Callwood to start the We Cancerve Movement, Inc., an organization that creates activities to bring happiness to homeless, sick and foster children through events and donated goods. Through the efforts of nearly 2000 volunteers, We Cancerve has been able to help over 3,700 kids in need.

Over 45,000 homeless people have been impacted by the organization’s fundraising and donation efforts.

* Lillian Pravda, 16, New York, N.Y. – After undergoing several surgeries to correct a cataract, Lillian Pravda learned that not every child in need of eye care is able to receive it.
