“I did my first fundraising event for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer in 2013. I got involved with Cookies because I appreciated the fact that not only do they support all pediatric cancer diagnoses, they utilize every dollar to the fullest. These were both very important things for me as I learned how underfunded research was once Lucy was diagnosed. I wanted to do something to change that and decided partnering with Cookies was a good match. When Lucy was first diagnosed in 2009, our friends did multiple fundraisers for our family, one of which was a Dodgeball Tournament. I figured it was a fun event, something that was unique for our community, and something many could participate in. It was a big success the first time and so I hoped it would be when I started doing it for Cookies. And I was right.
 
Our community loves the event and supporting our kids with cancer. The support means more to me than I can express in words. Not only the support our family received when Lucy was diagnosed, but the support for our cause. People want to be part of something that is meaningful, and I feel like this has been a venue for people for years now. A piece of advice for other Cookies supporters: utilize the connections and staff at Cookies, as that is what they want! I didn’t utilize for quite a few years and it caused a lot of headache and extra work on my part. I appreciate the support I have received and that has been offered to me.” – Hillary Waldeisen, Good Cookie since 2013
