Chris Hope Foundation makes donation
The Chris Hope Foundation donated a table and chairs to be used in the pediatric playroom at Greenwood Leflore Hospital!
This past November, the Milwaukee Tools Giving HOPE 5K was held in Greenwood and the proceeds benefitted the Chris Hope Foundation, which strives to lift financial burdens, pray with fearful parents, and put smiles on the faces of children battling cancer. The foundation was grateful for the community’s help and support in putting on the event and wanted to show appreciation to the Greenwood community. Although the foundation concentrates more on families that deal with childhood cancer, Chris Hope said it was a no-brainer to replace the much needed table and chairs in the playroom that provides entertainment and education to children staying at Greenwood Leflore Hospital. Pictured at the table from left, Chris Hope, founder and executive director of Chris Hope Foundation, Shelley Utz, advisor and director of social media for Chris Hope Foundation, and Kerri Grossman, child life coordinator at Greenwood Leflore Hospital.
Hope and Cope partnership
CHF expands to Mississippi/Alabama
CHF founder Christopher Hope took his mission on the road to Jackson, MS and Birmingham, AL to meet with the cancer child life specialist at their respective children hospitals.
CHF donated $500 to both hospitals along with two wagons to the UAB Children's of Alabama hospital.
While at UAB, CHF agreed to be a part of their Hope and Cope Program.
The Hope and Cope Program, at the Alabama Center for Childhood Cancer, provides support and services from diagnosis onwards using a family-centered approach, where the family and healthcare providers are partners working together to best meet the needs of the patient.
This is another great opportunity to make a difference in this world of childhood cancer. With your help, we can help win this battle and save the lives of so many and assist the lives it affects.
