What We Do

Hands for Holly is a 501(c)3 charity that was co-founded by 14-year old Holly Wade as she was battling brain cancer. Hands for Holly's mission is to provide financial assistance to families in need caring for a child with cancer.

Our vision is to eliminate Cancer Related Financial Toxicity (CRFT) by providing a continuum of assistance for families caring for a child with cancer through direct financial assistance and access to financial planning and education.

We do this by paying essential expenses (i.e. mortgage, utilities, transportation, etc.) to alleviate financial stress and give families the ability to focus on accessing care, getting well, and being at their child's bedside when they need them the most.

Interesting Info

Every day, 43 children between the ages of birth and 19 years of age are diagnosed with cancer.
50% of all families diagnosed with pediatric cancer will be forced to file bankruptcy.
Families in financial stress are at a 79% higher risk of mortality from cancer.
