Employees Who Inspire
Liam, the son of Josh Hansen the General Manager of the Dion’s on High Resort Blvd. in Rio Rancho, was diagnosed with Leukemia in April. When Liam was diagnosed, many Dion’s employees gathered to support the Hansen Family by bringing meals to their family. When asked how else Dion’s could help the Hansen’s, they asked for help collecting toys to donate to the Children’s Cancer Fund of NM.
Josh said, “We were first introduced to CCFNM during our initial stay in the hospital when Liam was diagnosed. Part of its mission is to provide a reward for children while they battle their cancer treatments. Liam’s weekly visits to the hospital are difficult, scary, and emotionally draining for him. He looks forward to stopping by the CCFNM Toy Closet after each visit. Receiving a small toy or prize always puts a big smile on his face and it helps him get through his treatments. CCFNM also brings toys to Liam’s two older sisters, making them feel included.”
Josh Hansen has been working for Dion’s for over 16 years. We admire his, and his family’s, desire to give back in the midst of this trying time. Their kindness while their son is still battling Leukemia is inspiring.
Small toys and gift cards are being collected for donation in Liam’s name to the CCFNM Toy Closet at the Dion’s Home Office located at 8525 Jefferson NE, Albuquerque, NM 87113. Some of the toys that Liam has enjoyed receiving have been toy cars and action figures. If you are able to donate, please remember toys for little boys as well as little girls who are battling cancer, and prizes or gift cards for teens. Donations will be accepted starting Friday, July 21, 2017 through the end of September, which is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
