Tim Malloy – President
In 1992 I founded the Ilene Malloy Memorial Fund after the passing of my mother from a cancerous brain tumor. My family and I have operated this Fund for over 20 years and provided emotional and financial support for numerous families and organizations in the area. I have received numerous awards for my contributions to the community, including the 1997 Russell Tyson Award of Hope for my “Contribution to Cancer Survivors in Chester County. In 2004 the Chester County Commissioners awarded me with the “Adult Community Hero Award” for “Outstanding Community Service”. In 2002 I completed the Chester County Leadership Connection Classes that are designed to prepare individuals for service on Non-Profit Boards, learn Board Governance and focus on volunteerism. But more important than the recognition that I have received from any outside organization is the support and approval that I have received and continue to receive from my family. My mother taught her children that “You get what you give”. I have lived by those words for many years and this has truly become a labor of love.
Joseph DeLarso Jr – Vice President
Joe came to know Tim though the local sports organizations in Pequea Valley. Then, in 2010 my own 16-year-old daughter was diagnosed with Clear Cell Sarcoma. There is nothing in this world that can prepare you for this kind of challenge. I can never express how much it meant to be able to do things for my Angel Danielle because of the support that The Ilene Malloy Memorial Fund afforded us! Tim and his family are the true definition of friends. Life is short, you must take the time to appreciate what we have. I am a better person for knowing him, and to be blessed enough to now help Tim and his organization support other families who battle through the hardest thing that life can throw at you, that is to watch a child have to fight a terminal illness. Sometimes the smallest things can help to ease the pain of the biggest hurdles in life!

He is a veteran of the USAF where he served as a combat rescue navigator. Mike currently serves on the Pequea Valley School Board. Over the years, he has been involved with the Ilene Malloy Memorial Fund in their fund-raising efforts.
Devon Malloy – Board Member Devon is the daughter of Tim and Lesly Malloy and has thus been involved in the organization from a young age. She has helped to organize benefit auctions and various other events for as long as she can remember. Devon is a senior in high school and played field hockey and softball in school. Following her graduation she hopes to attend college in fall 2015 majoring in digital communications with a focus in graphic design. Devon took on the web-page and design scheme for Three Hands as her senior project and is thrilled that she was able to use her love for design to help an organization that has always been such a large part of her life.
Vernon “Rusty” Young – Community OutreachRusty has been a friend of the Malloy’s for many years. Since the passing of his mother from breast cancer in 2005, Rusty and his family have sponsered fundraising events in her memory to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research. The highlight of these efforts is an annual horseshoe tournament. In recent years, money has also been donated to local families who have a loved-one suffering from the effects of cancer. Rusty has been married to his wife Dana for 26 years and they have two children, Rachael, 22 and Ryan, 18. Rusty is a member of the Parkesburg Baptist Church and currently serves as co-chairman of the trustee board. He is also currently serving as the Vice President of the Octorara Baseball Booster Club.
“You will be made rich in every way so that you can be generous on every occasion, and through your generosity will result in thanksgiving to God. This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God’s people, but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God.”
2 Corninthians 9:11-12
Bill Ries – Fund Raising Chairman
Bill is a local business owner and long-time friend of Tim Malloy. Through the years Bill has had the privilege of supporting the Ilene Malloy Memorial Fund and during that time has been amazed by the caring and generous work that this fund has accomplished. Bill is himself a cancer survivor and knows how important it is to receive support when dealing with the day to day issues that arise from dealing with cancer treatments and the journey that this disease can send one on. Knowing that Three Hands of Hope is able to bring a brief moment of joy and solace to the children and their families has compelled Bill to accept the position as Fund Raising Chairman.

Terry Cain- Board Member
In 2015 my Dad lost his battle to cancer. I was with him and cared for him the final two weeks of his life. That experience made me aware of not only the pain this disease causes to the patient and their family but how important it is to make the most of the time we have with the ones we love.
I coached youth athletics for over 15 years and served two terms as the president of the Pequea Valley Athletic Association. It was through the PVAA that I was provided the opportunity to work with Tim and THOH. During the last year of my last term with the PVAA, Tim and I decided to join forces for the annual golf outing and dedicate our efforts to raise money for both organizations. Preparing for that event gave me time to learn more about the great things THOH has done for families in our community. I am honored for the opportunity to work with the great people involved a THOH and to serve local families in need.
