The Michael Hoefflin Foundation provides $200 in grocery support, and $200 in fuel support to approximately 25 families each month. This financial support is offered to families within our services area who are in active treatment and express the need of financial assistance. The program is offered for a limited number of time, depending on the patient’s specific treatment plan, and family financial need. In 2017, The Foundation distributed $106,852 in grocery/fuel support.

While research has made tremendous advances in better treatments for pediatric cancer, sadly some children lose their battle. When a family loses a child, the Michael Hoefflin Foundation provides a financial Memorial Gift to our MHF Patient Families to help them cover the unexpected expense of burial services. The relationship with the Foundation continues unless the family moves out of our service area, or elects change their participation status. Through this Memorial Gift Program, the Foundation has provided over $300,000 in MHF Family Memorial Gifts.
