Donor Spotlight: Mike Barrett

Each year, Inheritance of Hope awards a well-deserving college-bound senior with the Legacy Scholarship. These scholarship recipients all share one thing in common: they all have a parent with a life-threatening illness.
 
Mike Barrett and his wife, Catherine, have generously funded the Legacy Scholarship for the past several years. Mike met IoH founders Deric and Kristen Milligan by chance when Deric and Mike were both studying in Australia. At that time IoH was in its early stages, but the business plan appealed to Mike. 
 
“I knew, from my own personal experience, that it addressed an unmet need--that of finding a positive and life-affirming way for easing the pain associated with the impending loss of a loved one.”
 
Here, Mike describes why their gift has been a positive and life-affirming choice for his family.

This past weekend was an incredible memory for me! I completed my first marathon with an amazing group of people.

We all ran to support Inheritance of Hope.

We ran so that families with young children who have a parent facing a life-threatening illness can experience joy in memories, comfort in community and hope in their circumstances.

Stay-at-Home Mom

DSC_0005 6

I am proud to be a stay at home mom.  Over the past 9+ years in this role, I can honestly say I have kept very busy managing my home and raising my kids.  The past year and a half have been different with both kids in school all day, but I still manage to keep my days very full (grocery shopping, cleaning, laundry, volunteer work, and IOH work).

My husband, Adam, told me when he was tucking Elizabeth into bed the other night she said, "Dad, I want to marry someone just like you."

Wow...what a wonderful thing to say!!! Adam was very honored and humbled...until she added, "then I can stay home like mom all day and just shop and stuff."
