The Chris Hope Foundation (CHF), a nonprofit organization providing financial and social support services to families of children diagnosed with pediatric cancer and other childhood illnesses, today announced that its founder Chris Hope has been recognized in the ninth edition of “Millennium, a Marquis Who’s Who Magazine,” honoring the legacies of professionals around the world.
Hope is featured in the social services and nonprofit section. The article shares insight into the CHF mission and vision, along with a profile on Hope’s professional endeavors and storied history of fundraising and photography.
“It’s an incredible feeling to be honored alongside so many innovators in a number of industries,” said Chris Hope Foundation Founder and Chief Imagination Officer Chris Hope. “Over the past three years, we have faced global challenges on an unprecedented scale. Through it all, CHF has been able to thrive and provide more resources to families than ever before.”
Since its founding in 2015, the Chris Hope Foundation has helped more than 3,000 families with treatment and travel-related expenses since we launched in 2015 – an average of more than 500 per year. Among other initiatives, in 2020, the foundation opened the doors to its CHF Family House, a place for families to stay who don’t meet the requirements for hospital-funded housing. In 2021, the Chris Hope Foundation won the Commercial Appeal’s Memphis Most award for Best Local Nonprofit Organization.
“Memphis’ award-winning pediatric hospitals do an amazing job in providing children’s medical treatment and in meeting most housing needs for families traveling for treatment, but families still face challenging financial gaps,” said Hope. “We are dedicated to aiding and empowering families facing financial burdens as a result of childhood cancer treatment-related disruptions.”
