Eliminating financial barriers to continue treatment can increase access to care for many women. 40% of all women we serve are living over the poverty level and unable to qualify for assistance from other sources.
We do simple things to provide hope to women and make a difference in big ways. Spending money on cancer patients’ most basic needs can eliminate barriers to care. Cancer patients can focus on treatment out-of-pocket costs if their basic needs are covered first.
We spend $30,000.00 a year to help cover gas money to get to appointments, paying towards utilities or housing costs, providing supplements and food, transportation costs, or medical copay assistance for prescriptions and doctor bills.
It is unimaginable that a donation of $50 for gas assistance can make the difference of being able to afford to treatment for some cancer patients.
- Every dollar donated to fund our main program stays in WNC and is provided largely by individual donors in WNC. The Hope Chest relies heavily on donations and contributions to give back to women in our community who have demonstrated economic necessity.
- Available funding for assistance varies month to month. We do have to turn away women in need each month. Your donations will help us assist more women. Needs of patients and the number of requests we receive are increasing faster than we can fundraise to meet them.
- Please visit our donation page to make a donation in honor or in memory of a loved one.
- Donations made to Missions of Hope for our Honduras support program must be clearly designated.
