Pay it Forward: Becky Nichols with the Loving Libbie Memorial Foundation in Austin

Pay it Forward: Becky Nichols with the Loving Libbie Memorial Foundation

AUSTIN, Texas — After the loss of her daughter to leukemia at the age of 5, Becky Nichols vowed to keep her daughter’s memory alive by helping other families whose children battled this deadly disease. 

She created the Loving Libbie Memorial Foundation to fill a gap, as the only program in Central Texas that supplies pediatric cancer patients with comfort foods while they are undergoing cancer treatments.  

Becky makes the macaroni and cheese as well as chicken and dumplings herself and stocks the freezers in the family rooms of the Dell Children’s Blood & Cancer Center outpatient clinic and other locations with her signature servings. 

Her volunteers said, Becky is full of love and she always has a smile on her face and something inspiring to say.

This is a labor of love for Becky and keeps her daughter alive in her heart.
