Helping Families of Medically Fragile
& Disabled Children Get the Support
& Resources They Need
Avalynn’s Hope Foundation provides ongoing support for families of medically fragile and disabled children who may not have experience navigating the medical system, as well as resources for financial assistance, fundraising, crowdsourcing, family services, grief support, palliative care, networking, recreation, and more. We are currently in the process of building Avie’s Place, the only ADA-certified recreational area of its kind in the 22 county-region north of Sacramento to the Oregon border. In addition, we also provide advocacy and funding for cancer and disabilities research.
Avalynn’s Hope was founded in memory of the legacy of Avalynn Wallace, a sweet, spunky soul who captured the hearts of thousands during her short time here. Diagnosed with AML leukemia at the age of 4, Avalynn spent three years battling cancer before being called to heaven in October 2019. During this time, the Wallaces discovered how difficult it can be for families to know about all the options available to them, or which types of support or resources they need—especially when it comes to the medical system and end-of-life care.
At Avalynn’s Hope Foundation, we know how overwhelming it is to have a child with a serious health condition; you may feel isolated, hopeless, or like you have to go through everything alone. We’re here to not only be an advocate for you but also help you be an advocate for yourself and your family.
