About Us

The Ray of Hope Foundation was founded to honor the life of Raymond Wene. We exist for the purpose of raising funds for brain tumor awareness. We equally support brain tumor patients and their families; as well as assist with continuing education for the neurology nurses at The Jewish Hospital Brain Tumor Clinic.

Our Reason

This man here is Ray Wene, the face of The Ray Hope Foundation. As stated above, Ray was diagnosed with Grade IV GBM in June of 2017. He fought a long and hard 29 months, and in November of 2019, the Lord brought him home.

Ray’s faith was unshakable throughout these hard times; nothing broke him. Through his testimonial journey, he wanted to change the lives of others by bringing them closer to God.

Ray was a passionate, loving man. He cared deeply about the youth programs held in church and kids who couldn’t pay to play. He desired to support them in any way he could, whether that be; financially or spiritually.

Lastly, Ray’s biggest goal was to bring awareness to brain tumors and further research in the medical fields. Our proceeds will be donated and used to further his request for The Ray of Hope Foundation. 

Our Mission

Our number one goal for this foundation is to honor the life of Raymond Wene. We will be supporting patients and families walking their own brain tumor battles, as well as nurses education at The Jewish Hospital Brain Tumor Center.

Our Vision

Our vision is to raise awareness for all types of brain tumors. Patients need to feel loved and supported during these troubled times, and our hope as a foundation is to be that support. We send the neuroscience nurses at The Jewish Hospital to their annual AANN conference in determination to advance their knowledge within the field. They are introduced to new devolping research and technology to strengthen their skills, enabling them to better care for their patients.
