2018 Claire’s Army Gala Success

I don’t know where to start, but it seems appropriate to start with THANK YOU! We are seeing the early returns from Saturday night and it appears that we eclipsed the $200,000 mark. (Our goal was $150,000.) A huge thank you to the Claire's Army Event...

Who Is The Army?

The Army goes forward. The Army is you, it’s me and it’s our community. When Claire was diagnosed with cancer, our personal community acted. They acted in big ways with financial support and with meals. They also acted in small, meaningful ways...

Jake’s Story

Thank you so much for everything you've done to support both my family and me during my treatment (and even some after).  From gift cards to dinners, these gifts definitely helped keep some stress in my family down-which drives me crazy! It really meant so much.  And...


  • To empower parents by eliminating daily stresses that can distract them from the precious moments they have with their sick child.
  • To ease the burden of parent so they will have a clear and focused mind for decision making
  • To connect those in need and those who can answer the need
  • To provide outlets for siblings.
  • To sustain normalcy

Throughout this past year we have said many times how strong the force of love is. Claire’s Army is an incredible force of love. They are an army of dedicated, compassionate and loving individuals who make things a little easier for families going through the hardest of times. We are forever grateful for them.

I don't exactly know where to begin to say thank you for your love and care for Madison and for the encouragement you have allowed God to pour into her life through you. Thank you for making the decision to begin Claire's Army.

- Madison's Mom

We will forever be grateful to Claire’s Army for their generous support during Charlie’s AML treatment. The dinner deliveries gave us something to look forward to, especially on the tough days. Some of our best memories of that time are when we’d sit around our little table with Charlie pulled up in his highchair, sharing a delicious meal, treasuring a moment of normalcy.
