Carol’s Wish Cards:
History of Carol’s Wish & Art Against Cancer Cards: In 2014, one of the two owners of the Cambria Toy Station was diagnosed with a very serious form of cancer. At the time, like most small business owners, Carol was one of the millions who lacked health insurance. To help cover the enormous costs of fighting cancer, Meghan & Carol developed the Art Against Cancer cards and sold them through the Cambria Toy Station and online. The cards also helped cover the wholesale costs of art supplies, coloring books, and sticker pads that Carol and her chemo buddy, Sophie, donated to the children’s cancer center at Roanoke Carilion.
