It's nice to meet you!
Feel free to reach out to our team with questions about volunteering, donating, and becoming a part of our programs!
President & Founder, Jenny
I created LL's Baytoevan's Love Foundation with the help of my best friend after my son relapsed. Both of us realized there was a need for a more specific foundation that strives to bring comfort and resources to families supporting cancer fighters. My passion for this cause is fueled by the bravery shown by fighters and my own family's fight against childhood cancer. By co-creating this foundation, I hope to give families a non-overwhelming space to access information and resources.
I met Jenny at Children’s Hospital Colorado shortly after my own son, Connor, relapsed with leukemia. Over the past 3 years, Jenny and I have become great friends and find much-needed support in each other. I personally understand the need that LL’s Baytoevan’s Love will fulfill for local families and are especially excited about the sibling support program. Siblings are often pushed to the side when a brother/sister is diagnosed with cancer, and it can be very difficult for them to find where they fit in. There are currently very few programs for siblings of pediatric cancer patients; I remember how small acts of kindness would bring a smile to Connor's sister, Chloe. Now it’s time for me to pay-it-forward! I am often hard-at-work behind the scenes for the Foundation, ensuring that we can continue to grow and provide much-needed assistance to our families.
Director of Family Resources, Clare
My name is Clare Barquero. My daughter Hannah recently finished treatment for Ph+ ALL. She was 11 at diagnosis, 13 now. I started volunteering last September as the family communications coordinator. I am passionate about helping families navigate through childhood cancer and I am mainly responsible for communication between families and our foundation.
Marketing Director, Danielle
Hello! My name is Danielle Morgan. I have been supporting the foundation since the start and have known Jenny, the President & Founder, since 2008. Supporting any family going through the challenges that cancer can bring helps fill my bucket of joy. As an elementary school teacher, I love working with children of all ages and helping them prepare for whatever life throws at them. Even though childhood cancer has not directly affected me, or my family, I have not had one family pass away from anything but cancer. I understand that cancer not only affects the warrior, but also the family as a whole. We are here to support you! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to share your story with us.
Fundraising Support, Kathleen
My name is Kathleen Sullivan and in the fall of 2018, I became the mama of a cancer warrior. The diagnosis shook our world; watching my senior lose everything she worked so hard for was devastating as a parent to witness. During our treatment journey, I found myself lifted up and strengthened to face this battle by this foundation. The volunteers came alongside us; encouraged us and cheered us on. Nearly 3 years later I can say my sweet daughter had completed treatment and is cancer-free. The journey doesn’t end for me though; I am forever changed. Having the opportunity to reach out in the pediatric oncology community and help other families is so humbling for me. I love every bit of it and wouldn’t trade this in despite the mountain I had to help my family climb. LL’s focus on the family unit is what really drives me. People don’t tell you how much your child’s diagnosis affects the surrounding family members and if I can help anyone through this struggle I will. My heart is forever tethered to childhood cancer.
Marketing Intern, Elizabeth
Hi, I am Elizabeth originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. I am a junior at Colorado State University majoring in Journalism and Media Relations and minoring in English. I love the field of media relations because it allows me to be creative, requires high attention to detail, and knowledge of pop culture. As well as being an intern, I also am a feature writer for Schon Magazine and work for CSU’s paper. In my free time, I love to hike at Horsetooth Reservoir, read magazines and explore new vintage shops. I have over 8 years of non-profit volunteering experience and am very excited to continue that work at this foundation.
Marketing Intern, Nicole
I'm Nikki and I am originally from New York City. I am currently a senior at CU Boulder majoring in Media Production and minoring in Philosophy. I have been volunteering/fostering dogs with different animal rescue organizations since my sophomore year of college! I studied abroad in Israel last year and ended up staying because of COVID from January-August and while there interned in the social media department at a PR agency. I am passionate about childhood cancer because my boyfriend's mother is battling cancer herself right now and has endured so much in such a short time. It is incredibly difficult to see her in this state as well as see the toll it takes on my boyfriend. No child should have to go through that and no parent should have to watch their child go through it.
Marketing Intern, Lia
Lia has a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Engineering and plans to pursue a Master's degree in Humanitarian Engineering with a concentration in nonprofit management. She's worked with several non-profits in fundraising, marketing and brand management, event coordination, and public outreach and education. Lia is passionate about the LL's Baytoevan's Love Foundation's mission to provide support to fighters and their loved ones as her own family has been affected by cancer. She's grateful to be part of such a passionate team and looks forward to connecting more families with the resources and support LL's Baytoevan's Love provides.
