An honor to say the least

Sheryl speaking at the 2018 Hope Gala.

On March 10th, Sheryl Holland graciously accepted the 2018 Leah Still Award for Courage at the Hope Gala in New York City. This incredible honor is awarded to those who have been personally affected by cancer, shown perseverance in the face of adversity, and used their experience to raise awareness and give back to the cancer community through personal or professional efforts.

Since 2012, the Conner M. Holland Foundation has provided over $126,000 in financial assistance, with $20,000 ready and waiting for future families in need. We have provided over 9,300 pairs of pajamas to children in hospitals all over the country through Conner’s Comfy PJ’s, and we are looking to expand this year by helping bereaved parents with financial struggles after losing a child to cancer.

We could not have done this without the generous support of our donors. It is because of you that we can help these families and honor Conner’s legacy. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and hope you will remain by our side as we continue to grow!
