Hope Fund is a resource to give low-income cancer patients emergency, short-term financial help so that they can move on with their lives at a time when taking care of themselves is critical.
During the period of cancer diagnosis and treatment, patients deal with a tremendous amount of stress. They must absorb and understand new information, make decisions, get to doctors’ appointments and treatments, and tolerate side effects. At a time when many patients are dealing with their own mortality, having to worry about financial issues can add an unmanageable burden.
Some of these patients need further assistance to get through the financial burden of their diagnoses. Providing emergency financial support to those who need it gives patients the ability to take care of themselves and get on with their own healing.
