In September 1997, three months after their infant son Hunter was diagnosed with a fatal genetic disease called Krabbe Leukodystrophy, Jim and Jill established the Hunter’s Hope Foundation.
As Chairman of the Board of Hunter’s Hope, Jill helps children with leukodystrophy and their families by extending the hope and comfort she has received through her relationship with Christ. Additionally, this platform allows her to raise awareness and research funds in pursuit of a resolution for these devastating diseases.
Jill and Jim have shared Hunter’s story all over the world and have appeared nationally on numerous television shows including: Fox & Friends, Hannity, Good Morning America, The Today Show, CBS This Morning, The Discovery Channel, The 700 Club, Oprah, ESPN, Fox Sports, and others.
Because of their intense passion and desire to share their faith and hope, Jill and her daughter Erin have been invited to share their story via numerous speaking engagements throughout the year. Their love for the Bible and the incomprehensible God who wrote it is contagious.
As their relationship with and love for their Savior and His Word continue to deepen, Jill and Erin will continue encouraging others and bringing His hope to those who have none.
