100 Families Battling Cancer. 3 Months. $150,000
Hope for 100 Challenge
Between September 1 and December 31, 2012 the challenge is on to help 100 local families battling cancer! At Bringing Hope Home, we know that when you get diagnosed with cancer, your life changes in an instant. That’s why we’ve created the Hope for 100 Challenge. The goal of the challenge is to directly pay household bills for 100 families battling cancer in the Greater Philadelphia Area, to keep them:
in their home…
with the utilities on…
and food on the table.
Are you up for the challenge? Join us! For us to reach our goal of helping 100 local families battling cancer, we challenge you to make a donation, adopt a family, get involved with one of our events, or create an event of your own. Every donation, no matter how big or small will make a difference to families battling cancer in our community! Find out how you can get involved below.
Adopt A Family

You will receive your adopted family’s personal story so that you know exactly who your donation is supporting.
