Hope for the Holidays

December 25, 2014 -

 A Message of Hope will match you with a local family based on your location. We will provide you with a holiday wish list from your adopted family. We are asking that donors purchase and wrap gifts from the wish lists, and coordinate their delivery to the adopted family in time for the holidays.

For more information about becoming a holiday donor or coordinating your extended family, neighbors, friends, or coworkers to sponsor a family this holiday season, please contact Julia Bialeski at

And for those who may simply want to help the cause by making a donation to A Message of Hope Cancer Fund, you can do so by visiting our
Thank you, as always, for your support!

In addition to the already burdensome costs of treating cancer, when a child or family member is critically ill, one parent may have to leave his or her job to care for them. This makes it difficult for families to cover expenses they previously did not have difficulty with, such as utility bills, rent or mortgage payments, rising gas costs, and other everyday expenses. MHCF offers families assistance with some of these costs.
