CONNER M. HOLLAND FOUNDATION
Caring for a child with pediatric cancer is one of the most challenging situations any parent could face. Medical problems quickly turn to financial issues as one or both caregivers stop working to focus on the health of their child. During this struggle, no one should have to worry about stacks of bills. At the Conner M. Holland Foundation, we aim to relieve families of financial and emotional burdens as they walk through the journey of a life-threatening illness. We believe that together, we can make a difference.
The Pajama Promise
The foundation began with a little boy’s promise to bring comfortable pajamas to all the children in the hospital. Sheryl Holland captures the story in her new book, “The Pajama Promise”. Allowing us all the opportunity to join Conner’s adventure alongside his new dinosaur friend as they bring that promise to life.
Based in south-central Pennsylvania, The Conner M. Holland Foundation is a recognized non-profit 501(c)3 organization that serves families in Lancaster, Lebanon, and York counties.

Conner’s Comfy PJ’s
Children who receive inpatient hospital care for care are typically limited in their ability to play, often times spending most of their day in bed. We believe making a child comfortable during their stay is important to their overall well-being. We created the Conner’s Comfy PJs program to meet this need. Each year during the month of May, we collect new pajamas that are distributed year round to pediatric cancer units at Penn State Hershey Medical Center and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). During our first year, we collected over 700 pairs, and to date, that number now exceeds over 12,000 sets of Conner’s Comfy PJs.
