The Chris Hope Foundation is dedicated to touching lives, empowering families, and advocating for pediatric cancers and other life-threatening illnesses. From providing educational tools and fun-filled activities to alleviating financial burdens, it is our mission to serve those facing the greatest fight of their life.
When visiting a friend and their child who was battling pediatric cancer, Christopher Hope saw a need. He saw firsthand how the hospitalization of a child could bring an immeasurable amount of financial and emotional stress to families. After rallying a group of friends together to help take care of a car payment that the family was unable to make due to time off from work to tend to their ailing child, Hope realized his longing to make a difference could be met in a way that was far greater than this one act of generosity.
And just like that, the Chris Hope Foundation was born. In April of 2015, he officially added two new titles to his name, Founder and Executive Director of the 501(c)(3), and went straight to work. The non-profit dedicated to touching lives of patients, empowering their families, and advocating for a cure. His focus? Catering to the needs that are often unseen by outsiders and left unfulfilled by these warriors in need: emotional support, focus on social services, and alleviation of financial burdens.
Since establishing the foundation, Hope has served countless families in the southeast experiencing the radical effects of life-threatening pediatric diseases. Whether it be on the job for UPS during the day or through his non-profit organization during after hours, Hope is always looking for a way to make the world a brighter place. He believes that when people come together for a cause, great things happen and because of that, he is living out his dream of instilling hope in the hearts of those who need it most.
