Bringing Hope Home
Bringing Hope Home® is a non-profit organization that provides Unexpected Amazingness® to local Families with cancer through financial and emotional support. Through our Light of Hope Family Grant, we offer a one-time grant to pay essential household bills for Families with cancer.
We know that a cancer diagnosis affects the entire family. We want Families to know that they are not alone. HOPE Nation is our community of donors, sponsors, volunteers, and dedicated staff who generously give their time and resources by spreading HOPE to those in need.
Thanks to HOPE Nation and Bringing Hope Home’s tireless efforts, our vision is that every Family with cancer will feel more hopeful and have less stress because of the positive, loving impact we have on their lives.
At Bringing Hope Home, we support every Family and individual with cancer that applies for assistance regardless of gender, ethnicity, type of cancer, religion, or age. Families are identified by social workers and nominated to our Light of Hope Family Program.

Creative Benefits, Inc.
In my role at Creative Benefits, I take pride in sticking to the same game plan of competitiveness, attention to detail, and producing results. We at CBI also pride ourselves in being proactive and not just reactive, ensuring we are equipped with a game plan for each and every one of our clients.
My purpose at CBI is to be able to offer the most comprehensive and affordable benefits package for the employer, as well as its employees. We are unique in that we are not a general agent for any carrier which allows me to be completely objective when completing a market analysis for each of the benefits that the firm is offering. Many employers are struggling with how to continue to offer benefits at an affordable cost. My goal and purpose are directly aligned with this problem. Through our market analysis, we are able to offer solutions specific to our client’s concerns. Our team works in partnership with companies to optimize employee benefit programs in terms of design, vendor alignment, and human resource strategy.

“Bringing Hope Home (BHH) was introduced to me in 2014 by a dear friend who was fighting her battle against neuroendocrine cancer at the same time I was fighting ovarian cancer. When I learned about BHH, I was extraordinarily thankful for them and their amazing staff for doing what they do. I could not imagine fighting cancer and having the stress of not being able to pay my bills. I became determined to help those in that situation as much as I could, including holding an annual golf and barbeque event, Tee it Up for Teal, and donating all proceeds to our BHH families. I am honored to be a part of the Board for this incredible organization.”
