Gabby's in a purple jump suite and matching hat standing and doing the hula hoop. She is smiling, holding the brim of her hat and looking at the person holding the camera. She is one of the last ones with the hula hoop up. There are a couple hula hoops on the ground and one kid looks like he just fell on the ground with his hula hoop. They are standing in a patchy green and brown grassy area and we see lots of people standing in the background.

As Gabby’s 26th birthday approaches on March 3rd, I am filled with memories of her infectious zest for life. Her crooked smile, love of knock-knock jokes, and adventurous spirit, even at the age of 6, remind us of the incredible joy she brought to everyone around her.

In the short months between her diagnosis and her passing, Gabby lived life to the fullest. She waterskied, rode horses, took tennis lessons, and even won the Hula hoop contest at her kindergarten field day. It was her love for fun and adventure that inspired the creation of the original Bag of Fun.

Gabby’s dream was to spread happiness, and thanks to you, we’re making that dream a reality. Your continued support allows us to bring smiles to children facing illness, just as Gabby would have wanted.

As we celebrate Gabby’s life and the impact we’ve made together, I want to express my heartfelt gratitude for your support. Here’s to Gabby, and to many more years of bringing joy to children in need!
