They lift each other up. They give selflessly to support each other. They don't let anything get in the way of their love.
At HelpHOPELive, we work with thousands of families each year and one thing is true for all: they are stronger with the support of their communities.
Meet Jett Stephen. Like any 2-year-old, all Jett wants to do is spend time with the "best daddy in the world." His dad, who is fighting polycystic kidney disease, needs a kidney transplant to stay healthy. To raise the money he needed to be put on the transplant waiting list, his family turned to their community and HelpHOPELive for support. Thanks to donors like you, Jett and his dad are spending this holiday season together, waiting with hope for the gift of life.
When Nick Karavite was diagnosed at age 13 with aplastic anemia, his 6-year-old sister, Mandy, was his perfect donor match. Turning to HelpHOPELive for fundraising support the Karavites were able to relocate for treatment to be by Nick and Mandy's side. Thanks to the efforts of their community, Nick is one year post-transplant, and Mandy has her big brother back!
Suria Nordin's life changed forever when she was paralyzed in an accident while vacationing with her finance, Kirby. Working with HelpHOPELive, Kirby rallied family, friends and coworkers back home to raise money to make his townhouse accessible for his fiancee. This year, Kirby and Suria can celebrate their first holiday as husband and wife at home.
