Hunter's Wish Gift

Wish Gift Landing Page Graphic_White

Hunter's Wish Gift helps families who face extreme financial stress attributed to the costs associated with caring for a child with Krabbe or another Leukodystrophy.

Requests are granted on a case-by-case basis and are limited to meeting needs that will enable an affected family to provide the best possible care for their child.

Many times families come to the Foundation for assistance with a unique need – travel expenses associated with treatment, a wheelchair lift to enable a family to safely travel with their child or assistance in purchasing a vehicle to accommodate their child's equipment needs.  These are only a few examples of ways Hunter's Wish Gifts have helped our families focus on what matters most - caring for their child!

For more information on Hunter's Wish Gift, please contact our Family Programs Representative, Kathleen Scott.


What Our Families Have to Say...
"Days after giving birth to our second child, my oldest daughter Karis had to spend a couple of days in the hospital because of respiratory issues. Two days after that, we were hit by a tornado! Thankfully, we were all unharmed and our home only suffered minor damages.  My car, however, was pretty badly damaged - nearly all of its windows were completely shattered.  Since we only have liability insurance, we were facing a nearly $2,000 repair. Thank you to Hunter's Hope and Peace, Love & Trevor for covering the full cost of this repair!"
~ Katie Almy, mom to Karis (Krabbe Disease - diagnosed too late for transplant)

"Thank You to all of you for your kind gift. The van has already been a blessing to our family. Words can not express how it feels to have the van and to know that we have not had to make any financial changes. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!! ...I am speaking of both Hunter's Hope and Liam's Foundation. We will always be grateful."
~ Dianna Green, mom to Dalton (Krabbe Disease, transplant)

"We would like to thank Hunter's Hope for your generous gift.  As Jameson continues to get bigger so do his mobility needs. This came at just the right time as we began to wonder how we were going to accomodate him and his equipment needs.  Without the gift of this van we would have struggled to meet his needs.  Thank You!!"
~ Dawn & Alex Howard, mom & Dad to Jameson (PMD, transplant)

Thank You to our Strategic Partners!
We are proud to partner with the following foundations to help fulfill the Wish Gifts you see above. By working together, we can all help our families focus on what really matters - caring for their child!

Liam Hammond Memorial Foundation Logo
The Liam Hammonds Memorial Foundation was founded in memory of Liam Hammonds (3/4/2000 - 6/19/2001) who suffered from Krabbe Disease. In partnership with Hunter's Hope, they are dedicated to serving families affected by Krabbe and other Leukodystrophies.

NFL Foundation Logo

 Because the NFL Foundation understands the importance of helping families affected by Krabbe and other Leukodystophies, funding research through the HJKRI, and advocating for expanded newborn screening in every state, they proudly support our mission through their Annual Players Foundation Grant.

Peace Love and Trevor Foundation Logo
The Peace, Love & Trevor Foundation was founded in honor of Trevor Aldrian, who was diagnosed with Krabbe Leukoystrophy in 2011. Their mission is to support other Krabbe families whose children are too far advanced for any of the current available therapies and are in desperate need of love, support and financial assistance.
