About the Cathie Hostetler, Lynda Petty & LLS 2016 “Home of Hope”
Each year The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (LLS) launches its Man & Woman of the Year fundraising campaign. Last year, 2016, a local businessman, philanthropist and survivor by the name of Greg Hostetler was nominated. Greg, along with Stonefield Home, Hostetler Ranches and many local contractors and supporters built a “Home of Hope” in Merced, CA. Proceeds from the sale of the house went towards advancing the mission of LLS – to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin’s Disease and myeloma, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
So many of us have a connection to cancer—whether it be a friend or relative, but for Greg Hostetler, this is personal. At the age of 12, Greg was driven to UCSF Medical Center where he was diagnosed with lymphoma and given a 1 in 10 chance at survival. He was one of the lucky ones. Greg believes there is a cure that’s waiting to be found. That’s why Greg decided to build the Cathie Hostetler, Lynda Petty & LLS 2016 “Home of Hope”. The Home of Hope is located at 463 Rhianon Drive Merced, CA. This “Home of Hope” was sold and all proceeds from the sale were donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Central California Chapter.
