Full bellies and full hearts
In memory of a Casey Cares child, Abraham “Hammy” Scrivner, Hammy's Heart was created to offer gift cards to families who need assistance with their grocery bills. While families with a critically ill child are overwhelmed with so many other financial obligations, Hammy's Heart helps with the basic need of feeding a family. Hammy was known for his wisdom and affectionate smile during his brain tumor battle. His caring spirit lives on through the Hammy’s Heart program, which fulfills his last heart's desire, to provide families loving meals together.
“I want to be able to provide families who have kids that suffer from pediatric brain tumors or other diseases with grocery gift cards, so that their homes can have food if the parents have to stop working like I had to do. I chose Casey Cares because Casey and all of the staff genuinely loved Hammy. He felt so special because they would always choose him for special events, and he felt as if he was part of the Casey Cares Family. Casey Cares created many memories for my children that I would not have had because I could not afford it.”
