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.

Hospital Haircuts - ask any parent about the moment they are forced to cut or shave the hair of their child with cancer. It evokes so many emotions and signifies the realness of the diagnosis. Thank goodness that Claire's Army met Tiara of If The Crown Fits - who will make the trip to the hospital to handle any haircare 💇‍♀️needs for our pediatric oncology patients. Tiara possesses the compassion and professionalism to walk into a traumatic situation and handle it with grace and love. 💗 Thank you Tiara for taking care of our special children. Consider her for your children's haircuts at home - the Ratliff family and many others do! ... See MoreSee Less

Turning Bad to Good - thank you @shaifargian and @yafokitchen for the generous donation of dinner to the pediatric oncology patients and nurses we serve in Charlotte. When the power went out at their SouthPark location, they didn’t want to waste al of their fresh and local food. So they called us to find mouths to feed! Thank you @salvatoretaboada and Melissa for picking up and delivering to @levinechildrens tonight. Claire’s sister Sydney made the delivery to Hemby Childrens Hospital. 💕🥗🍗🍅 If you haven’t tried @yafokitchen you are issuing out! They now have a location in Plaza Midwood too. ... See MoreSee Less

Hope amidst grief-Claire’s mom was asked to join her good friend Rebecca Woodman to record a segment for the David Chadwick Radio Show tomorrow morning (10/24) from 8-9am on WBT. David and Rebecca were, and still are, sources of comfort, encouragement, and faith during Claire’s treatment and after. It was a joy and honor to share a mic with these two - to talk about Claire, her Army, and faith. ... See MoreSee Less
