Every day, hundreds of hardworking families hear an unimaginable phrase:
“Your child has cancer.”
And that’s why organizations that support families and their cancer-stricken children are so important.
And it’s why John Caprine, an Internet Marketing Manager at Scorpion, chose the Michael Hoefflin Foundation for his Employee of the Month (EoM) donation.
The foundation works to deliver hope, help, and healing to families that have a child fighting cancer. More specifically, the foundation focuses on funding cancer research, raising awareness about childhood cancer, and providing both financial and emotional support to local pediatric cancer patients.
“I chose the Michael Hoefflin Foundation because I have had multiple family members and friends who have been impacted or have lost their lives to children’s cancer,” John said. “I have seen the impact that cancer has had on their families and on the children themselves.”
“The Michael Hoefflin Foundation assists the families with children diagnosed with cancer by providing individualized care and support where lives are interrupted most,” John continued. “Their purpose is to ensure that families have everything they need so that their children can completely focus on getting well.”
Founded in 1995 to honor Michael Andrew Hoefflin, who died of brain cancer at the age of 10, the Michael Hoefflin Foundation has been improving the lives of children with cancer for more than 20 years. Since the foundation’s inception, it has invested nearly $2 million into medical research, with the bulk of those funds going to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, City of Hope, Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA, and the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.
Scorpion has been an active supporter of the the Michael Hoefflin Foundation for years. Our employees are proud participants in the Michael Hoefflin Foundation’s annual 5K Walk for Kids. Additionally, Scorpion donated a living room furniture set to the family of a child diagnosed with leukemia, and Senior Search Engine Marketing Manager, Megan Bennett, chose the foundation for her EoM donation in the autumn of 2017.
