Kevin Hoover - Hug Your People: A Family’s RV Journey Across America Helping Kids with Cancer, One Wagon At a Time

Kevin Hoover lived most of his professional life thinking that he would be happy when the next thing happens. The promotion, the raise, the market changes. The joy always seemed to be around the next corner. 

In 2019, Kevin's 4 year old son Baxley was diagnosed with stage IV cancer & the world stopped.  Everything that was once important became trivial.  Kevin's perspective and purpose changed.  Baxley beat cancer and now Kevin, and his wife Suzanne, operate a business from an RV that the family drives around America to help other kids who are fighting cancer.

Kevin and Suzanne created a non profit that is called HYP! - Hug Your People & they have a goal to generate $1 million per year to help kids & their families. They give kids with cancer and their families a safe space when they are thrown into an unfamiliar world. They do this by giving kids a wagon, assisting families getting to and from treatment and funding pediatric cancer research.

Hug Your People was something that Kevin and his family said to other people and to themselves. It was an innocent request for his family to let each other know that they needed a hug. As they said it to other people as a reminder, it started to catch on. Before you knew it, Baxley had inspired a movement of kind hearted people to care a little more about the people around them. It would become the very organization that Kevin's family is working on today.
