The “Crimson & Cream Notes” IBC Team from OU’s Price College of Business presented Ally’s House with a check for $17,028.74 on Friday, May 6th at their final presentation. The group’s assignment was to come up with a product, market it and sell it with the proceeds going to a charitable organization. The group sold “Crimson and Cream Notes” which were OU-themed notepad sets and chose Ally’s House as their charity. They sold completely out of their product and raised more than any other group this year!

“Our company raised thousands and thousands of dollars for this camp, but the smile on the child’s face at the end of the day is absolutely priceless!” said Brad Roth, junior business major and VP of philanthropy.

The 17 students also donated more than a thousand service hours to Full Circle adult daycare in Norman. The initial startup loans were provided by First Fidelity Bank and the students spent 15 weeks going through a full marketing and sales campaign, culminating in their final presentation to faculty and students.

“We were completely overwhelmed with the size of this donation,” said Linda Webb, Executive Director of Ally’s House. “Camp Live-A-Dream very much needed these funds for the camp in June. This is such a blessing, and we couldn’t be more grateful!”

Ally’s House recently processed or 1,000th financial assistance application for the families of Oklahoma children with cancer! Since our organization was established in 2004, we have helped every family that has applied.

“Ally’s House has been a champion of Oklahoma children with cancer and their families for more than ten years,” said Governor Mary Fallin. “I am thankful for this wonderful organization and its unwavering support of our state’s most valuable resource – our children.”

Ally’s Story
25 October 2015 7:54 pm

Allison Faith Webb was born September 6, 2000 to Scott and Linda Webb. Allison, also known as Ally, was a happy toddler with a sunny disposition. She amazed family, friends and hospital staff with her quick mind, recognizing letters of the alphabet by sight before the age of 2. She loved to paint and color, and was fond of Dora the Explorer, The Wiggles, Monsters Inc. and Shrek, to name a few.

Just before her 2nd birthday, Ally developed a knot on the side of her belly. Her mother took her to the doctor, who ordered an ultrasound. By the end of the day, the family was shocked to learn Allison had large tumors on both kidneys. The following week her parents took her to the Jimmy Everest Center at Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City for a CT scan. That day they learned that Ally had small spots on her lungs as well. A surgical biopsy confirmed that Ally had Wilm’s tumors, a form of kidney cancer. She had “bilateral” disease, which meant both kidneys were involved. This occurs only in about 5% of Wilm’s tumor cases.

Ally had 3 major surgeries, radiation and 3 different kinds of chemotherapy. She received care at Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City and at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. Unfortunately, Ally lost her battle with cancer on August 6, 2003, in her mother’s arms, a month shy of her 3rd birthday.

Allison’s favorite place was home. After a long hospital stay, she was always thrilled to get back home. Each time she returned, she would happily say, “We’re at Ally’s house!” For this reason, the name “Ally’s House” has special significance for Allison’s family and friends. It symbolizes a safe place – a place of welcome, where comfort and love help ease the burden.

Camp Live-A-Dream Celebrates Superheroes!
29 April 2015 3:44 pm

Camp Live-A-Dream (CLAD) 2015 was a wonderful success! Our campers gathered June 7th – 12th for this year’s super hero themed week of activities. Along with the fun of just hanging together, they took a field trip to Frontier City, played human foosball, did a ropes course, sang karaoke, danced and even had a cheerleading tutorial!

Camp Live-A-Dream is a program of Ally’s House that allows Oklahoma kids who have had cancer to attend a free camp that allows them to be themselves in a save and fun environment. It costs approximately $450 to sponsor a camper, and we welcome donations for this purpose! To read more about Camp Live-A-Dream, visit our Programs page.
