What is the story of Hope Hollow? How did it begin?

Hope Hollow is a dream and vision come true…we are humbled and honored to support persons who are struggling with the disease of cancer as our lives have been deeply affected by this disease. Our story begins when Jane’s mother died of pancreatic cancer when Jane was ten years old and her aunt (a second mother to her) also died of pancreatic 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 prayed and spoken our gratitude daily. We are now living that gratitude by offering welcome, hospitality and hope to those coming to Columbus, Ohio seeking medical treatment and care for their diagnosis of cancer.


Hope Hollow’s mission is to offer lodging, meals, transportation assistance and emotional support…at no cost…to cancer patients and their loved ones, who are financially in need, while on their journey with cancer.


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 those persons we have yet to meet.


– Jane Jacquemin-Clark and Kevin Clark, Founders of Hope Hollow
