October 25, 2013 Heather Serafin was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. Heather's is not an easy one to tell, but this is where everything began. Just before Heather's Diagnosis she completed a Tough Mudder, several 5k runs, and P90X. How can someone in such good shape have a terminal cancer? The answer is DIPG.
An average of 250 children are diagnosed per year with this disease that has nearly a 0% chance of survival. The problem starts with lack of funding. Less than 4% of the government research dollars goes to Pediatric Cancers. For us, and for Heather, that is not enough. So the H Life was founded to help change things. To a situation that seems hopeless, we strive to bring hope, faith, mercy, and encouragement to those who have been effected by DIPG, and pediatric brain cancer.
The H Life began as a charitable brand to make a difference for families, research and awareness. Heather was The H Life's biggest cheerleader. This intense fighter never lost faith or hope. October 25, 2015 Heather passed away. Heather was an inspiration to every person that she met. May of 2018 we became a 501(c)3 charity and continued Heather's vision to share the story, help the families, and fund research done well. You may look around our site and ask why coffee and tea? Well, who doesn't love a warm cup of coffee to start the day? By simply switching brands to the H Life, can you save lives and have a great drink!
We spread positive messages and make cool things to raise funds for research teams and families affected by DIPG, Pediatric Brain Cancer. Our mission statement is bring to hope, strength, mercy, and encouragement to those in the process of overcoming the impossible: pediatric brain cancer.
