The Making Hope Fund
Though there are many programs designed to assist patients going through medical treatment, few programs are designed to focus on the patient’s caregiver(s). When faced with the uncertainty of a serious illness, many caregivers focus exclusively on the needs of the patient. As a result, their health and well-being may suffer as a result. From talking with caregivers, and personal experience of The Making Hope Fund’s founders, these needs are unmet by most existing programs. Our desire is to meet that need. While they are taking care of the patient, The Making Hope Fund will focus on the needs of the caregiver through organizing meals, funding for incidental expenses, assistance with needs related to lawn care and housekeeping during treatment, and other needs that may arise. Through these efforts we feel we are addressing an unmet need in the community.
