Who We Are

Shields of Hope is run by local Public Safety professionals in the West Michigan area. The mission is to provide physical and financial assistance to those affected by cancer in an effort to make living with cancer a little easier.

We will visit those women, children, men and families; “make wishes” come true for others; offer physical assistance as needed to others. We will also continue to develop our relationship with Bluebird Cancer Retreats and other cancer organizations that are not for profit.

While we are a registered non-profit corporation with the State of Michigan our 501c3 status is held under Bluebird Cancer Retreats.
