Son donates late mom’s $100,000 Precious Moments collection to breast cancer foundation

A southwest Missouri woman’s collection of 2,000 Precious Moments figurines has been donated to a breast cancer foundation.

Jon Stouffer donated his late mother’s collection to the Breast Cancer Foundation of the Ozarks. Shirley Stouffer died of heart problems in 2007 at age 67, he said, and she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1992.

He said she collected Precious Moments figurines for about 25 years.

“They’re going to a good cause,” Jon said of the childlike angel figures. “She would be pleased that they’re going to help somebody.”
