12th Annual Team Michael Toy Drive 2024

12th Annual Team Michael Toy Drive 2024

In memory of Michael Malone, on his 19th Birthday in June, Team Michael and Children’s Cancer Fund present the 12th Annual Team Michael Toy Drive, benefiting the oncology and hematology patients at Dallas Children’s and Cook Children’s.

This year we are asking for toys and Amazon gift cards between now and April 30th. We will make the deliveries to the hospitals with the Children’s Cancer Fund Teen Board.

We have created an Amazon wish list to make things easier.

Toys can also be delivered directly to 3905 Hanover, 75225. These brave patients need things they can play with in bed or inside their hospital rooms. Our goal is to fill the hospitals’ pediatric cancer prize closets with special gifts for the rest of the year.

Thank you for all you have done and continue to do. We are eternally grateful for your support.

With love and hope,

Team Michael and CCF

Michael Malone

Michael was diagnosed with Stage 4 High Risk Nueroblastoma on December 21st, 2009. Nueroblastoma is an aggressive pediatric cancer that strikes approximately 650 children a year in the U.S., with nearly all cases being reported before the age of 5. Michael was 4 when his cancer was discovered. He attended Meadowbrook School in Dallas, St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, and was a huge fan of the Little Gym at Preston Forest, Kid Art in Snider Plaza and YMCA Sports. He loved playing baseball, basketball, soccer, word games, drawing, swimming, and going to school. He loved to win, he loved to laugh and he never gave up on anything.

Michael courageously completed over 20 rounds of chemotherapy, a bone marrow stem cell transplant, and 52 radiation treatments.  Michael also participated in a six month Phase 3 Clinical Trial called ch14.18 beginning in September 2010.  During the trial he was in the hospital one to two weeks every month receiving antibody infusions. In February 2012, Michael endured two major surgeries to remove two rapidly growing tumors from his spine and his left eye orbit.

Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of his team of dedicated doctors at hospitals across the country, Michael’s disease progressed beyond any further treatment options. Michael spent his last days as comfortably as possible, at home with hospice, and surrounded by his loving family. He was granted his angel wings on Saturday, June 23, 2012.

Thanks to all for the extraordinary outpouring of support during this difficult journey.
