Since 2006, a small, yet dedicated group of individuals engaged in fundraising activities with Children’s Hospital in Birmingham, AL. The raised funds benefited the Developmental Therapeutics Program at Children’s Hospital of Alabama, and helped families with children fighting cancer in need of financial aid.
In 2012, the Hope for Autumn Foundation was created to engage in independent fundraising events in Alabama to include but not limited to its signature “Diggs & Friends Crawfish Boil.” As of 2012, the name of the signature fundraiser will be changed to the “Hope for Autumn Crawfish Boil.”
The Hope for Autumn Foundation is organized to raise and distribute funds to assist individuals and/or families in distress and/or in need of medical and/or monetary support. Funds are also used to sustain research to identify novel treatment approaches for children with cancer who are unresponsive to traditional or standard therapies.
Further, the Foundation will advocate for and/or provide to the public and healthcare providers educational programs regarding related healthcare topics, therapeutic options, and/or issues.
