Our purpose for High Fives for Hope, Inc. (H54H) is to create awareness and do our part to eradicate a disease that has touched all of us one way or another. Founded on the principle that we can make a difference, we believe that the desire is inherent in all people to make our world a better place. Through the help of those who believe in our cause, and the dissemination of millions of high fives, High Fives for Hope, Inc. (H54H) and its founders believe we can make a difference.
Spotlight Survivor Jared
Jared didn’t think much of his common cold and sore throat just a few weeks prior to a minor surgery he was receiving. Before undergoing surgery, he had his blood drawn to ensure the procedure could be conducted safely – that’s when doctors noticed his white blood cells and hemoglobin levels were low. After surgery, he immediately started receiving tests and biopsy’s which later confirmed that Jared had an acute form of Leukemia (AML).
“When I was diagnosed, so many things were running through my head but I never let the thought of not surviving cross through my mind.” Jared continued, “Now looking back I think about that as I live my everyday life. I look to make sure I live my life to the fullest and my goal is to have a lasting impact on others.”
