New Year Delivery @PMCH

What a way to wrap up to 2014! Thanks to the generosity of College Wood Elementary families (Carmel, IN), Sheets From Home completed a donation of over 70 sheets on December 31 to Peyton Manning Children's Hospital's Oncology unit. This hospital has a special place in our hearts. They have an unbelievable team... and this is where it all started for our son and his cancer battle. Here's a picture of him with our eager volunteers bringing in fun new bed sheets accompanied by one of the most fantastic doctors in the world.
