The Hope & Cope Compassionate Fund is a unique program designed to help patients with cancer and their families who are experiencing financial difficulties and don't have access to other family or community support.
The Fund responds to urgent requests from patients coping not only with the physical and emotional side effects of cancer, but also with the financial devastation that can occur when a patient can no longer work due to illness. It is entirely supported through the generosity of private donors.
“Every year, our Compassionate Fund helps people like Élise, who shouldn't have to choose between buying groceries for her kids and paying for her life-saving medications, and Jacques, who is too weak and sick to drive and needs help to pay for transportation so that he can get to the hospital for his cancer treatments.
Unfortunately, for every Elise and Jacques we manage to help, there are twice as many people whose requests we have to turn down due to lack of funding.
Every donation made in support of the Compassionate Fund will truly make a world of difference by empowering us to provide compassionate help to more people who are facing tremendous challenges."
