Six years ago today Liam left the arms of his family to meet Jesus. Liam fought his battle against cancer with courage, strength and honor.

36 children are diagnosed with cancer every day in the United States.

TODAY a mother and father will receive the news that their child has cancer.


It could be my child...it could be yours.


Childhood cancer remains the leading cause of death in children by disease in our country.  Over 12,500 children will be diagnosed with cancer this year.   In the past 20 years only 1 new cancer drug has been approved for pediatric use.


Liam was the kind of boy that always wanted to help others. His legacy of giving and hope continues through the Hoover Hope Foundation


It is our mission to ease the financial burden by meeting the unrecognized needs of families in our community.  We want families to be able to focus on their child and not be distracted by the financial hardship that cancer can bring. 


September is pediatric cancer awareness month...would you consider being the hope for one? 


You can give online to our foundation or give to our Hoover Hope Angel Fund established at Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt.  This fund directly assists local families by helping meet the unrecognized needs they face during their child's treatment.  


If you are unable to give perhaps you would consider joining us for our upcoming  Hoover Ride for Hope or the Hoover Run for Hope


TODAY I remember Liam. 

Michelle and Brad have never wavered in their faith even in the midst of great loss and pain.  Click here to watch their inspiring story of hope. 

The battle rages on but they are anchored in hope. 

”I am a mom who lost a son and I dream of the day
another mother does not hear the words,
‘your child has cancer’”.  ~Michelle Hoover (Liam’s Mom)

"We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure."  Hebrews 6:19
