    Amy Antone

    My name is Amy and I started the Cuddles of Hope Foundation in June 2018. My son who was only 2 years old was hurt and rushed to the hospital and required surgery on his eye. This was a very scary situation and since it was an emergency, we were not prepared for the trip to the hospital. Lucas only had a towel stained in his blood from his eye to hold onto while he was being looked at by nurses and doctors. After this situation, I wanted to make sure that children in any type of frightening experience can have a sense of normalcy and comfort when receiving a stuffed animal.
