Inheritance of Hope is an organization devoted to inspiring hope in young families facing the loss of a parent. The 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity was founded by Kristen and Deric Milligan following several years of coping with the challenges of raising three young children while battling Kristen's terminal liver cancer diagnosis.
Sadly, Kristen lost her courageous bout with cancer in 2012, but her passion remains as the organization believes that "Every Family Deserves a Legacy®."
