About Inheritance of Hope 
Inheritance of Hope inspires hope in young families facing the loss of a parent. The organization was founded by Deric and Kristen Milligan following several years of coping with the challenges of raising three young children (ages 4, 2, and 7 months) while battling Kristen’s terminal liver cancer diagnosis. Sadly, Kristen lost her courageous bout with cancer in 2012, but her passion remains as Inheritance of Hope continues to provide life-changing experiences for young families facing terminal illness. As leaders in legacy development, Inheritance of Hope believes that “Every Family Deserves a Legacy®.”
