Henry’s Hope is that all children with life-threatening medical conditions will have access to medical treatment, supplies, and support for their families - regardless of socio-economic status. Since 2008, Henry’s Hope has been building a following and is a resource for families all over the US. Despite the rapid growth of Henry’s Hope, the community need has never been greater. In the coming months, Henry’s hope will be implementing a comprehensive marketing initiative to raise awareness, funds, and the hopes of families around the world.
“This mission of this organization is one that I believe in passionately,” says Troy Foster, Executive Director of Henry’s Hope. “My son Henry is a fighter, but in the end we know his condition is incurable. His hope is that as many people as possible get the support and love they need in their times of crises. So to deliver as much on his hope as we can, our team has created a dynamic marketing program which will benefit those families facing horrendous medical situations. We want those in need to know that they are not alone and we will do everything we can to help.”
Henry's Hope is dedicated to providing assistance to children (and their families) with life threatening and terminal illnesses. Our strategic marketing plan will be comprised of:
1. Hope at Home. We will use Patient Advocates to help families navigate their way through the government, insurance companies, and hospital/doctor's policies. In our work, we have found that families are entitled to benefits and they need help not only finding, but obtaining them as well. The focus should be on the most important thing -their sick child and family, not navigating the ins and outs of red tape. That's where our Patient Advocates step in. And, if there are no benefits to be had, Henry's Hope will attempt to intervene to get the family the help they need.
2. Global Hope. Henry's Hope is dedicated to partnering with hospitals and the medical community to break ground in finding cures and treatments for these rare illnesses and diseases that take so many of our children worldwide. Childhood illness knows no boundaries and neither does our mission.
3. Raising Awareness, Pushing for Change. Though Hope at Home and direct help is our passion and priority, Henry's Hope will dedicate time and resources to work to assist change the laws that limit and cap benefits for children with these conditions, and provide more research funding for these kids. The fact is, so many of these children are afflicted with these diseases, but can't afford or find their way to a diagnosis and treatment, and pass on. The population of this group is staggering in size, and they need a voice. Henry's Hope wants to give them that voice.
4. Fundraising and Partnerships. In the past month, the Arizona Diamondbacks and Macys have partnered with Henry’s Hope to drive awareness and show their support in a time when it is so critically needed. In the coming months, we will be partnering with other corporate sponsors to help raise the funds to continue our mission, as well as enlisting schools nationwide as a social service partner.
As Henry’s Hope continues to grow, the need for community support has never been greater or more evident.

Henry's Hope is dedicated to providing children with life-threatening diseases with the voice, support, and attention that they deserve. From the very basics, many of these children and their families do not have the resources to get the proper diagnosis, or even afford the proper medical treatment (including special foods and medicines) for survival. Henry's Hope is dedicated to helping connect those children and families with what they need to survive.
