Ed Lin, Janice Murray, & Kevin Holmes
On August 30, 2010, KHTS Welcomed the Michael Hoefflin Foundation to the KHTS Community Resource Station. We featured Ed Lin and Kevin Holmes on the KHTS Non-Profit Spotlight.
The Non-Profit Spotlight – hosted by Janice Murray , can be heard every Monday at 10AM on AM-1220 KHTS and is sponsored by Castaic Lake Water Agency.
The Michael Hoefflin Foundation was established in 1994 in honor of a young boy named Michael Hoefflin, who had recurrent brain cancer. During his struggle, his parents, family, friends and neighbors, rallied together and pledged to become a positive force in the discovery of cures for all children with cancer.
Michael’s determination, unflinchingly positive outlook on life, and strong spirit while battling the disease became the inspiration of this small volunteer group. The Foundation was created with the desire to help all children with cancer, using Michael’s kind spirit and compassion for others as our guide.
Before his passing, Michael played a key role in developing the mission for the Foundation, and establishing the goals of the organization bearing his name.
The Michael Hoefflin Foundation is here with a simple wish – to put an end to children’s cancer in all its forms. Their goal is three fold: They are committed to finding better treatments and cures through medical research; to promoting awareness of childhood cancer; and to assisting local children and their families through outreach programs with love expressed through both emotional and financial support.
Simply put, the Michael Hoefflin Foundation strives to provide Hope, Help, and Healing™ to families struggling with pediatric cancer.
The 17th Annual Evening Under The Stars will be held on Saturday September 25th at 6pm with special musical guest Five For Fighting.
