The Life & Hope Fund
The Life & Hope Fund was established in 2001 to ensure that patients with cancer or malignant blood disorders lacking adequate financial or insurance resources have access to quality medical care and treatment. These patients, under the care of a physician at St. Luke's Hospital in need of medically necessary services and supplies, are eligible to apply for assistance.
Diana Bartlett and her family established the Life & Hope Fund to give back to the community.
"She knew how difficult it was to struggle with disease even with all the family, friends and financial support she was privileged to receive. She could scarcely comprehend how anyone could face such a struggle alone and without resources."
-John M. Bartlett, in his eulogy to his wife, Diana, who died January 10, 2002
The Life & Hope Fund assists in covering:
How You Can Help
- Medication for the treatment of symptoms related to the disease or treatment plan
- Medical supplies and equipment
- Transportation to the hospital or St. Luke's physician offices for scheduled appointments or tests
You, too, can give something back to help those in need. Contributions to the Life & Hope Fund are encouraged from individuals and groups to honor or memorialize loved ones and recognize special events or anniversaries. Make a gift to Life & Hope.
