Miles of Hope Annual Appeal

We won’t beat around the bush. People with breast cancer need help now more than ever.

Our Medical Gap Care Fund provides emergency financial assistance for people in treatment for breast cancer who cannot pay a bill. It is administered by six social service agencies to service eight counties. We pay for expenses like transportation, fuel oil, rent, food, and clothing for children, medical expenses not covered by insurance, and phone bills. We like to think we replace some of the hope lost with some of the hope we have stored up from seeing all of you at our fundraising events: Hoops for Hope Women’s Basketball Tournament, The Spring Brunch, Family Fun Run, Goals for Hope Women’s Soccer Tournament and the Community Walk for Breast Cancer.

Every $100 you donate will help your friends, neighbors and family get treatment and fight breast cancer with dignity.

A donation of $100 = 1 week of co-pays for radiation treatment
A donation of $250 = 12 round trips to and from treatment
A donation of $500 = 5 screening mammograms for the uninsured
A donation of $1000 = 1 month’s rent for someone in treatment who cannot pay their bills because of high medical costs

Thank you for helping us help as many people as possible. Please make your donation by credit card on our Active.com page by clicking here. Or mail a check to:
