When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the diagnosis is usually sudden and the news can be devastating. The Michael Hoefflin Foundation steps in to provide comfort and support through a variety of programs. Throughout the year the Foundation helps in several ways, including providing gas and grocery assistance when needed, offering support group meetings, family outings & events, and counseling services - all at no expense to our families. We feel such basic practical support is aid crucial to families dealing with the emotional and unexpected financial burden of cancer. Since inception in 1995, we have assisted over 600 families and are currently serving 342 families, with nearly 25 on active monthly support.
Our wish for this campaign is to raise at least $5,000 in order to be able to assist local children and their families through our Outreach programs with love expressed through both emotional and financial support.
