Meet Our Founders,
Jane and Kevin
Hope Hollow is a dream that we have shared for some time…being able to support those struggling with cancer because our lives have been deeply affected by this disease.
Jane has experienced several of her family members having had cancer. Her mother died of pancreatic cancer when she was ten years old. Her mother’s sister…who was a second mother to Jane…also died of pancreatic cancer. Her other maternal aunt was diagnosed with and survived colon cancer.
When Jane was diagnosed with medullary thyroid cancer in 2007, we received the good news that it appeared to be encapsulated and had not metastasized. In December 2010, Jane was diagnosed with breast cancer. After two surgeries and seven weeks of radiation treatment her prognosis appeared to be very promising due to early detection. We have since spoken our gratitude daily to God and others. We are now living that gratitude by offering support to persons seeking medical care for their diagnosis of cancer.
Hope Hollow offers, at no cost, lodging, meals, transportation assistance and emotional support to people with cancer, their family members, and friends. We offer a welcome, hospitality and hope to these individuals while on their cancer journey.
It has been said that “strangers are friends we have yet to meet.” In the spirit of caring, we believe that Hope Hollow will help those we serve to feel at home while traveling away from home. We hope to make a positive difference in the lives of persons we have yet to meet.
