Hope for Miracles was created out of love for our son Karson, and all children like him. Karson was diagnosed with a Neuroblastoma in 2014 at the age of three. He has endured two major surgeries to remove a neuroblastoma. Given that only 4% of all funds raised for cancer research go to childhood cancer and only 7 to 10% of all childhood cancers are Neuroblastoma, we felt hopeless, and left praying for miracles. We knew that in order to change this statistic we needed to do something; we needed to help. This is when Hope for Miracles was born. With your help we can significantly change this statistic. We will not give up until lifesaving research and trials are able to happen, and cures are found!
Through our fundraising efforts we have met some tremendously kind and generous people, and as crazy and scary as this world can seem at times, there are angels out there and they have made a big difference; we can’t thank them enough! These people have made us very hopeful that we can help make miracles happen. It is our belief that there is an astronomical number of people out there wanting to do good and to help in some way. In this world of Technology and Social Media, we are hoping to reach YOU, and together, we can make miracles happen.
Our Mission – Hope for Miracles is a non profit organization bringing hope to families of children with Neuroblastoma by funding research for life saving trials and cures.
Our Vision – Hope for Miracles envisions a world where no family ever has to witness a child suffer from Neuroblastoma.
If you donate, what will you will receive? A connection with families and children waiting for research and cures, a sense of empowerment that YOU can be the change; YOU are making a difference, and lastly, overall knowledge that you will be helping current and future families and children with Neuroblastoma have HOPE!!!
What will we do with your monetary donation? How will it be spent? Our CEO, Board Directors and Board Members are all volunteer, and will continue to be volunteer. We have had very minimal operational costs due to donations of time and services. We know that it can’t stay like this forever, but our goal is to stay at less than 4% operating costs. Therefore, a maximum of 100% and a minimum of 96% of your money will go straight to Neuroblastoma research! Our 990 Forms will be posted on this website, so you can verify that we have met this goal. We want to be completely transparent about our mission and how we reach it. If you have questions, please reach out to us. It is important to us that you feel good about making a donation.
