2016 Update – Bringing HOPE to young people with brain cancer

Dear Friend of PHBF,

Since PHBF was established in 2011, we have raised more than $300,000 to fund pediatric cancer research.  We also funded our 4th annual Family Camp Day at Camp Joy and support young people battling brain cancer and their families in collaboration with the Psycho-social support team at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital’s Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute.


–          $ 68,500 Donations and fundraising events

–          $ 66,600 Research funds

–          $   5,100 Support for children and their families

–          $   4,500 Scholarships

We are privileged and honored that you have trusted us to be good stewards of your generosity.  Thanks to you, we have been able to bring more HOPE to families with a child battling brain cancer.  It’s not too late to make a tax-exempt donation to help PHBF bring more HOPE to children with brain cancer.  We HOPE we can count on your continued support in 2017, as well.  Please go to www.prayhopebelieve.org or email us at info@prayhopebelieve.org to donate.  You can also learn more about our mission and other ways you can help!

With HOPE and appreciation,


Rick and Lynne Merk, Co-founders
