Miles of Hope Annual Appeal 2011
Dear Miles of Hope Family,
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, and Family Fun Run, Goals for Hope Women’s Soccer Tournament and the Community Walk for Breast Cancer.
$25 if you would like to purchase a gas card for someone to get to their cancer treatments.
$50 to give one massage while someone with breast cancer is receiving their chemotherapy
$75 if you would like to purchase a gift card for groceries for a family having a financial crisis while going through treatment.
$100 to pay for one mammogram to save the life of a newly diagnosed individual
$500 to pay for a month of Healing Vibrations – our music program for patients and their families receiving treatment
$1000 for a scholarship for one college bound high school senior whose life was affected by breast cancer.
Thank you for helping us help as many people as possible. Please make your donation on-line by credit card, or send your check, payable to Miles of Hope BCF, to P.O. Box 405, Lagrangeville, NY 12540.
