Michael Hoefflin Foundation
Gillian Stone & Janice Murray
On March 5, 2012, KHTS Welcomed the Michael Hoefflin Foundation to the KHTS Community Resource Station. We featured Gillian Stone on the KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight.
The Non-Profit Spotlight – hosted by Janice Murray , can be heard every Monday at 10AM on AM-1220 KHTS.
The Michael Hoefflin Foundation was established in 1994 in honor of a young boy named Michael Hoefflin, who had recurrent brain cancer. During his struggle, his parents, family, friends and neighbors, rallied together and pledged to become a positive force in the discovery of cures for all children with cancer.
Michael's determination, unflinchingly positive outlook on life, and strong spirit while battling the disease became the inspiration of this small volunteer group. The Foundation was created with the desire to help all children with cancer, using Michael's kind spirit and compassion for others as our guide.
Before his passing, Michael played a key role in developing the mission for the Foundation, and establishing the goals of the organization bearing his name.
The Michael Hoefflin Foundation is here with a simple wish - to put an end to children's cancer in all its forms. Their goal is three fold: They are committed to finding better treatments and cures through medical research; to promoting awareness of childhood cancer; and to assisting local children and their families through outreach programs with love expressed through both emotional and financial support.
Simply put, the Michael Hoefflin Foundation strives to provide Hope, Help, and Healing™ to families struggling with pediatric cancer.
Walk For Kids With Cancer is an event that gives everyone in the local communities an opportunity to celebrate the lives of children and their families who have been affected by childhood cancer.
At the walk, teams and individuals will participate to raise awareness and funds to support the Michael Hoefflin Foundation.
