In October, Scorpion made a donation to the Michael Hoefflin Foundation by contributing a living room furniture set to support the Mendez family whose daughter was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2009.
However, after recognizing the scope and gravity of the services this charity provides, one Scorpion employee felt inspired to contribute more.
Every month at Scorpion, an Employee of the Month (EoM) is chosen from each of Scorpion’s dozen or so departments, and from there, one is chosen at random to choose a worthy organization to donate to.
For the month of October, Senior Search Engine Marketing Manager, Megan Bennett, was chosen to represent Scorpion Cares, our charitable giving division. She picked the Michael Hoefflin Foundation as the month’s charity.
The Michael Hoefflin Foundation provides individualized support for families who have been disrupted by pediatric cancer. An organization that arose from a single child, Michael Andrew Hoefflin first began to experience flu-like symptoms at the end of kindergarten. When these symptoms didn’t subside or improve, Michael’s parents knew something wasn’t right. At the age of 6, he would be diagnosed with PNET/medulloblastoma.
Despite battling for months on end, and undergoing various treatments and chemotherapy, Michael lost his battle with cancer in 1996.
Today their sole mission is to put an end to children’s cancer in all its forms.
On what compelled her to select the Michael Hoefflin Foundation, Megan reflected on her own experience:
“Now that I have children of my own, I could only imagine the difficulties these parents and families must go through. To have the Michael Hoefflin Foundation as a fixture of support is an amazing resourcesfor families undergoing one of the most trying times of their lives; a resource that deserves our support.”
