"I wanted to extend a heartfelt THANK YOU for the amazing work The Hope for Autumn Foundation continues to do for our programs and the patients and families we serve. The support and assistance you provide is critical. Just this week in clinic, I had a patient and his two siblings proudly show me the new clothes they got for Christmas. You made that happen! In my new role as Director of Developmental Therapeutics, I am hopeful that we will be able to grow the number of early phase clinical trials. The support that Hope for Autumn provides will continue to help us make enrolling on studies feasible for families who have to travel to Birmingham, take time off from work, eat out, find childcare, etc. You are a wonderful partner in our mission to provide cutting edge treatment to our patients."

- Dr. Alyssa Reddy, Children’s of Alabama

"Today we went in to the Bone Marrow Unit and got a wonderful surprise, a gift card from you guys! What a nice surprise! We can't thank you enough. I am so amazed that you are able to help local families to the tune of $30,000! That is amazing and inspiring. You are the only assistance of any kind that we have received and it is so, so appreciated.”

- Mother of Max (3 years old)

“My great grandson, Cadence was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and is doing well today! There are many ways to support research and assist families going through this journey. Today I am thanking God for The Hope for Autumn Foundation and their contribution to Childhood Cancer Awareness and Family Assistance. Because of generous hearts like YOURS they were able to give $30,000 in assistance to families battling cancer at Children's of Alabama Hospital plus $5,000 to Research Programs. Yes, my sweet Cadence was one of them. Thank you Hope for Autumn. How thoughtful, and kind, and determined to make a difference.”

- Janice, Grandmother of Cadence
