TOUCHing Base with the Board – Phil Hoy

Phil Hoy – Vice Chair, TOUCH Inc

And so it began…

In 2009 Dr. Cathy Engel contacted me with the idea of creating a non-profit organization to help cancer patients with non-medical expenses. She would call it TOUCH in the hope of touching the lives of people whose lives and finances had been ravaged by cancer. She asked if I would help her to organize it. I said yes immediately. Retired after more than 50 years as an ordained Protestant minister, I had known many cancer patients who could have benefited from TOUCH. Others joined with us and TOUCH was established with the help of many generous donors. This work has been both challenging and rewarding. My hope and prayer is that TOUCH will continue as long as there are cancer patients who need our help.
