ABOUT OUR FOUNDER
Founder and CEO
Ma Hila's Heart Project
A small heart shape cut from red construction paper is what started me on this journey to provide comfort and care for Families Battling Cancer.
It was a memory of hope, love, and faith that my aunt shared with me as my mother asked for a heart to comfort her during her battle with pancreatic cancer. It was a promise her Ma Hila shared with her long ago and a reminder that her spirit and faith were stronger while her fight was daunting.
Our mission is to impart that same message of hope, love, joy, and faith to every single family we Bless through the Ma Hila's Heart Project.
It is my heartfelt honor to live out this passion of serving families during what is quite possibly the most critical fight of their lives.
I invite you to join me, our Board of Directors and our Advisory Council on our journey to make a difference!
