Taylor County girl’s design featured in 2011 Cards of Hope collection

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Ally Quigley, 11, of Grafton is a featured artist in the 2011 edition of Cards of Hope.

The cards are the main funding source for the Cure Kids Cancer Fund, a project of West Virginia University Children’s Hospital that ensures patients are provided state-of-the-art medical care, as well as psychological and social support for them and their families. Card sales also benefit the Beads of Courage program, which allows pediatric cancer patients the opportunity to tell their cancer stories through strings of beads.

Ally is the daughter of Joe and Tara Quigley. Her brother, Timmy, died in 2004 as the result of medulloblastoma, a brain tumor. His family created Timmy’s Fund, an organization dedicated to helping assist the families of pediatric cancer patients, in his memory.

Ally is a fifth grader at Heritage Christian School and enjoys music. She plays violin, piano and saxophone and loves art, drawing and coloring. Her card, “Santa Claus,” is sponsored by Sam's Club #4936. It features a Santa Claus and his bag of presents atop a chimney.
