About

We provide financial assistance to families battling cancer or other life-threatening diseases.

The March Forth With Hope Foundation provides financial assistance to families battling cancer or other life-threatening diseases. The Foundation was established by Stuart and Shelby Stout in memory of their daughter, Hope Stout, shortly after she lost her courageous fight with cancer.

The story of Hope's battle, and the compassion and caring she showed towards others until her death, sparked an unprecedented outpouring of support from her community. When given the opportunity to have almost any wish fulfilled by the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Hope's wish was that the other 155 Wish kids would be granted their wishes. The story of Hope's life and her wish captured the Charlotte-areas hearts and souls and the legacy of her wish continues still today.

It was Hope's desire to help others, and that is the sole purpose of the March Forth with Hope Foundation.

Why is it called that? Hope's birthday was March 4th, 1991, the only date that commands to MARCH FORTH.
