"The healing is [in] knowing who you were, not what you might be." -Lucy
Lucy’s Love Bus'™ mission is to:
- deliver comfort and quality of life to pediatric cancer patients by providing funds for free integrative therapies.
- offer young people lifelong lessons in leadership and service to others through philanthropy.
Lucy Grogan was 8-years-old when she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. During Lucy's long illness, her friends and family raised money to help support Lucy in her fight. Lucy discovered the benefits of integrative therapies such as massage, acupuncture, art therapy, and therapeutic horseback riding during her treatment. Lucy told her mother that when she was done with her treatment she wanted to start a program that would provide free integrative therapies to children undergoing cancer treatment. Lucy defined the mission of the organization and the services it would provide. Since 2006, we have been delivering love and comfort to children with cancer by offering integrative therapies that can help manage the side effects and late effects of traditional cancer treatment.
