Hot Shots Automotive Supports Legos for Leukemia!
LEGOS for LEUKEMIA was founded by my son Christian Flanders, as a way for him to honor the memory of his dad and grandparents. It’s also a way to give kids fighting cancer and other life threatening diseases a creative way to deal with not so fun days that include chemotherapy and bone marrow transplants.
At age 10 Christian lost his Grandpa Bob to prostate cancer, a year later he lost his Grandma Jan to thyroid cancer, & a few months later he lost his dad Mark Flanders to Leukemia. In 2009 Christian learned about a 9 year old boy named Taylor that is currently suffering from Burkitt’s Lymphoma. Knowing all too well the effects of cancer Christian wanted to help Taylor by giving him something to do during his hospital visits. So he sent Taylor a big box of LEGOs. Helping Taylor gave Christian the idea to help other kids affected by cancer and other life threatening diseases. So he started asking friends and family for LEGO donations to take to Children’s Hospital as a way to celebrate his dad’s life.
His friends and family loved the idea so much Christian decided to have an annual LEGO toy drive which he named “Legos for Leukemia” or LfL. He started a facebook page to spread the word and on 2/18/2010 (Christian’s dad’s birthday) he & his family delivered 135 LEGO boxes to the Children’s Hospital Colorado. In 3 years LfL has grown and now has 21 volunteer directors & delivers to 23 hospitals all over the US. LfL supporters have donated an estimated $21,300.00 in LEGOs.Our mission is to bring LEGOS for LEUKEMIA to every Children’s Hospital in America.
