Gabe's Chemo Duck Program


In 2006 Lu Sipos created a duck for her young son Gabe, followed by a nashville non-profit organization "Gabe's My Heart." Gabe's My Heart is an organization to help children currently being treated with Cancer to become familar and comfortable with treatment procedures.  They came to ASCEND with  the idea to spread Chemo Duck to Children Oncology centers across the nation and together the two foundations were able to do just that.


Gabe's Chemo Duck was very well received by the medical community and the program grew all the way to hospitals in England.  ASCEND Foundation enjoyed working with Gabe's My Heart to create such a successful program and hope to take a similar journey with 'CC'~The Cancer Companion.
