The Foundation

Heart IllustrationThe Helping to Heal Foundation is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with a mission to enable the printing and distribution of Helping to Heal, the comprehensive, yet simple, common sense resource guide for parents caring for children who are fighting serious illness.

The H2H Foundation makes the book available for free to parents at hospitals and other recognized health institutions, through generous donations and fundraising efforts. Limited edition printings sponsored by individuals or family foundations also make this outreach possible.
