Our Story

Tucker Helstrom was a boy living in the Hopkins community. He spent his short 9 ½ years playing sports, laughing with friends and family, and showing love to all.  During his last eight months, Tucker inspired all those around him with his courage to still play, laugh and love as he battled bone cancer, which took his leg, and ultimately, his life.

Now, his mother, family, and our generous donors are continuing his legacy with Team Tucker Association by ensuring more children Play, Laugh, and feel Love.

What We Do

Children who are fighting life-threatening diseases are in particular need of opportunities to Play, Laugh, and Love as they battle through scary, painful realities.  We help children and their families in these situations by providing opportunities to renew strength.  We can:

  • bring family and friends for visits
  • provide a getaway for the child and family when treatment allows
  • surprise the child with toys or other gifts

Thanks to our donors, we make sure that more children experience the relief and joy of play, laughter, and love.
