Joe Volpe's Fundraiser:

Joe's Run for Inheritance of Hope

THE STORY:

After being diagnosed with a rare terminal illness in 2003, Kristen Milligan searched for children’s literature to help her children -- Ashlea (then four years old), Luke (two), and Rebecca (seven months). Unable to find anything that met their needs, she decided to write her own book. The result was A Train’s Rust, A Toy Maker’s Love, the story of a train family whose mother begins to rust, prompting questions of the toy maker about what will happen next. Three surgeries, twenty-two months of chemotherapy, and two books later, Kristen is going strong.

Kristen and her husband, Deric, expanded the concept in May 2007 by founding Inheritance of Hope, a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity with the vision that "Every Family Deserves a Legacy."® The organization began selling Kristen's books, and in August 2008 Inheritance of Hope hosted its first all-expenses-paid Legacy Retreat in Lake George, New York.

Inheritance of Hope continues to expand its offerings to young families facing the life-threatening illness of a parent. While you're here, click the menu links above and below to explore who we are and what we have to offer!
