Bringing Hope to Families Battling Childhood Cancer

Glimmer of Hope Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization showing girls and boys their strength and beauty through the donation of bald dolls and providing HOPE to families battling childhood cancer, in honor of Ella Integlia.


What We Do

Bald Dolls

To make the world a less scary and more inclusive place for children battling cancer. We sponsor and donate bald dolls (and dolls with hair) to better help children feel represented and confident during their journey.

Best Day Ever Photo Shoots

Once to twice a year, we create a magical day for a group of girls battling cancer in a particular state. The Best Day Ever consists of hair and makeup services for each girl, a customized gift basket, a catered lunch, crafts, a princess dress and their very own doll in a matching princess dress, followed by a professional photoshoot at a magical location!

Bereavement Boxes

To help heal a broken heart, we have created bereavement boxes for families we have served after their child has passed. We partner with Spencer Welch Studios to send watercolor portraits of each child as part of each box.

“A Bright Light”

We came home from our 3 day stay out of town for clinic and Lennox’s doll was here. We have had a very rough day and these are the only smiles we got; her new doll! She was so excited to receive her and that she was brown. Thank you for being a bright light in our dark day! We really needed these smiles!


“Thank you”

Evelyn shaved her head over the weekend. We gave her her new doll yesterday and she loves it so much! Thank you again, a million times over, for this absolutely wonderful gift you give our warriors.


“Nice to See Her Smile Again”

Brooklyn absolutely loves her doll! She was so excited when she realized it was an American Girl doll and she said โ€œI never thought I would be able to get one of these!โ€ It was so nice to see her smiling again. These last few weeks have been so difficult for her.  believe that this doll is going to go on many trips with her and get her through some tough times.
