Junior Victoria Caputo (Hicksville, N.Y.) of the Southern Connecticut State University gymnastics team recently spent time volunteering in conjunction with the “Hope for Jonathan” organization, one that assists youngsters with cancer.
“Hope for Jonathan” is an organization that was started by a young girl about 19 or 20 years old who’s brother was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 2. He proudly beat cancer and now is doing amazing. The girls name is Sarah and the little boy is Jonathan. What Sarah does now is goes to hospitals, houses etc. and creates “movie baskets” for the children. There are video games, movies, candy and a whole bunch of other things to cheer these little cancer fighters up. Victoria recently went with her to three children’s houses which she volunteered from 1pm to 6pm.
They went to each house and gave them baskets as well as hung out with them to cheer them up. Victoria will be doing more with them by donating a bunch of candy to hope for Jonathan.
