Our foundation was formed out of a need that we saw through Blair’s journey!
On 6/22/05 The Anderson family was forever changed. Blair Erin, then 14 years old was taken to the hospital feeling worse then she had ever felt before. After a few tests, the word no family ever wants to hear was quietly spoken…..CANCER. This was the beginning of a journey for one family – one family who mirrors so many others.
Blair, like so many other children, spent months and months in the hospital receiving treatments. In many cases the treatments make these kids even sicker than before they started. Their families are scared, stressed, and have no time in their days to handle the routines that they had been so use to. The basics are left undone as they spend weeks and even months at a time in the hospital. Blair lost her battle on 3/25/07 after conquering cancer on 2 separate occasions. She left behind so many wonderful memories…..and an idea….an idea to help people.
Hospital personnel with Minneapolis Children’s and the U of MN Masonic Children’s make referrals to Blair’s Tree of Hope 501c3 Non-profit for families who need assistance. Items that we provide to the families could be a Gas Cards, Target/Walmart Gift Cards, Grocery Cards, A Housecleaning, Family Photos, A Monthly Parking Permit for the parking ramps at the hospitals. Weekly we take Snacks, toiletries, Magazines, (current), craft kits and lip balm to Minneapolis Children’s and the U of MN Masonic (rotating schedule). We also provide greeting cards that parents can come in and take (Happy Birthday, holiday, etc), and packets of puzzle books and playing cards.
Your donation dollars are put towards helping us to achieve our mission and goals of helping families so that they can spend more quality time with their child(ren) going through a cancer/blood disorder/Bone Marrow Transplant journey!
HOPE…4 SIMPLE LETTERS PUT TOGETHER TO FORM ONE POWERFUL IDEA…..Helping Other People Everyday.

How can you help?
Blair’s Tree of Hope Non-Profit Foundation is hosting its 4th annual Interpretations of Hope event on Saturday, April 9, 2016. The event will be held at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, 1111 Main Street, Hopkins MN 55343.
This event is being held to raise funds to help families who have a child(ren) going through a Pediatric Cancer, Pediatric Blood Disorder or Pediatric Bone Marrow Journey at either the Minneapolis Children’s or the U of MN Masonic Children’s Hospitals.
These families spend weeks, sometimes even months in the hospitals and we help them with gas cards, Target/Walmart cards, grocery cards, parking passes and much more. Since inception on 7/31/2007, we have processed all of the applications that the social workers send to us for the families. Our current budget is set to help 140 families and we will surpass that number.
We ask you to consider our request for a donation of product or sponsorship of our event. Know that your donation and/or sponsorship will help us give HOPE to these families in their time of need.
