Hope For Hoffie

This page is dedicated to a beloved friend - Anttonia Hofmann. "Hoffie" is the media center paraprofessional at Button Gwinnett Elementary. If you've ever met her, you know she is one of the most kind, loving, and genuine person you will ever meet. She always has a smile on her face and always has a kind word. She is a mother of two boys, a wife to Bill, and a grandmother to a beautiful baby girl.

Hoffie is now facing her THIRD round with cancer. After battling cervical cancer and kicking its behind, it came back and was found in her lymph nodes. Never a quitter, Hoffie fought back and won round two. But cancer is a stubborn beast and has returned, this time in the form of metastatic lesions on her other lymph nodes.

I started this GoFundMe page in order to raise money to help Hoffie and her family with all their expenses. Last year we raised over $4000.00 for Hoffie and I lost all my hair.  :)  This year her fight continues and we are still looking for support!  Please search Facebook for the group "Hope For Hoffie" and request to be added.  We will be using the group as a platform to continue to share news about Hoffie and organize transportation and meals for the family.

Thank you for all your help and support!

Hi friends! It's been a while since our last update, but here we go!

Hoffie has been fighting hard and doing some serious ass kicking. However, the other day she received news that the cancer has moved into her lower spine. We have organized a Facebook group to try and do some more fundraising and to organize transportation and meals for the Hofmann family. If you have a moment, please search for Hope for Hoffie on Facebook. It is a closed group, but you can request to be added. Right now we are working on putting together an online auction, so if you have an item that you'd like to donate to the auction, please message me with a picture of the item so that I can put everything together.

Thank you for your continued support and all your prayers and well wishes.

Whew! It's been quite some time since we've updated this page, so bear with me as there is a lot of news to share!

Hoffie had her scans this week. The good news is that there is no new growth. YAY! The cancer has stabilized, so it's not growing/spreading/etc. She will do another cycle of the treatment and have another scan in three months. The bad news is that she will out of school for the rest of the year. Boo. We miss her so much!

Also, if you have donated to our page, if you would be a dear and email Hoffie at tonehofmann@gmail.com your mailing addresss, that would be fantastic! Hoffie is asking for the mailing addresses of her donors, so don't forget to send that to her.

I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season and that your new year is off to a great start! Please be sure to spread the love and share this page!

From an email from Hoffie:

"I'm doing good.....this is my up week. I have my 2nd cycle of Chemo next week on Monday, Tuesday & Wednesday. This cycle I will be using the chemo drug Topotecan but also will have this new drug called Avastin......which is still in clinical trials. "

Please keep Hoffie in your thoughts and prayers next week.

Also, if you are in the area and are willing to put together a meal for the Hofmanns, please let me know and I will get with you to arrange that.

Thank you so much for all you have done!

I still have the magnet Hoffie gave us after a successful year of Relay. I always enjoyed her smile and spunk. I keep saying prayers for you girl!
