Greetings Partners and Friends!

Our hearts are with everyone that have been affected by this global pandemic. We hope that you are safe and well. We will continue to provide support to our children diagnosed with terminal illnesses as an organization within the guidelines provided across states and local governments. While we are dealing with this global pandemic, we are careful to remember the families that we have and continue to serve.

We just wanted to let you know that our efforts have not stopped, we are just doing things a little differently.

Thank you in advance for your continued support and our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Let The Good Times Roll On

Hey Friends,

Take a look of our most recent opportunity to serve at Ronald McDonald House in Durham. We had an amazing time preparing and serving brunch for 52 families. Here are just a few pictures. we hope that you will be able to join us and or even support our efforts by visiting our “get involved” page.

Thank you in advance,


Giving is what we do!

Tyrus Hinton caught in the act of saying thank you to the care givers in honor of National Care Givers Month!

Hey Friends,

Caregivers are kind of a BIG deal to me. They work tirelessly, lack rest, often deal with abuse and hear loads of challenging news concerning their loved one on a daily basis. While, I know that they do it from the heart, many caregivers neglect themselves to ensure that their person has the love and support they need.

HCF has decided to say “thank you” to the individuals whose names were submitted at the video appeal. Thank you for thinking of others. Our hopes are that they will feel special knowing that caregivers are too important to be forgotten.

In case you are reading this and you have someone that you want to receive a special gift from HCF, be sure to email their name and address to hintoncaresfoundation@gmail.com

A Necessary Resource

Hi Tyrus,

I thank you for sending me a copy of your book, Baby Steps, and I have read every page, including your inscription to me!  I am sincerely touched Tyrus!  Thank you! 

Baby Steps is so thoughtful, and well-presented.  The ideas you develop from your experience are definitely of value, whether another parent decides to adopt every one of them, or just some of them.  You really emphasize points that an anxious, overwhelmed parent, cannot think through very clearly. But you are a helpful guide in their process. Separating emotion from the act of listening keeps going through my mind. This information takes on greater significance coming from you than it ever could from one of the hospital staff.  The book is also small enough, the pages easy to read so it is not overwhelming, and the chapters clearly present the messages a parent is likely to be seeking!  I love that you have shared this with me.  I have shared it with several of my colleagues.  

I can’t recall if I mentioned that there are 9 social workers (not one, like when you met me!) in our Division.  Six of us work with newly diagnosed oncology patients, 2 with families of kids with sickle cell disease, and one in general hematology and Survivorship. 

Your book is especially special to any family, in my opinion, of a newly diagnosed child requiring intensive and long-term treatment, despite its emphasis on children with cancer.

The parents of our nearly 200 newly diagnosed kids with cancer each year will definitely benefit! 

I’m delighted that you have taken your unfortunate, difficult experience, and in Terrell ‘s name, learned and now offer so much to others.  I wish I could have provided you with this information when I first met you.

Childhood Cancer Awareness

HCF has partnered with a few different nonprofit organizations to ensure that we are working pretty hard throughout the month of September to increase awareness.

Our hope is that every family we touch will receive hope during what can be a very challenging time.

You may not be able to physically be with us, but your tax deductible donations help us to do what we do. You can purchase gear or simply donate to this great cause.  PayPal.Me/HCFoundation

We are doing what we can, while we can!
