Cancer Hope Fund

Supporting cancer patients and families through the power of hope.

Throughout Mercy’s continuum of cancer care, we’ve seen the powerful healing benefits of treating the spiritual and emotional side of cancer as well as the physical side — with hope, encouragement, compassion and understanding. The Hall-Perrine Cancer Center is continuing this legacy of superior care. That’s the goal of the Cancer Hope Fund.

Treating the Whole Patient, Not Just the Cancer

A cancer diagnosis is overwhelming not only from a physical and emotional perspective, but a financial standpoint as well. The Cancer Hope Fund seeks to provide hope through financial assistance that helps patients focus on their recovery. To find out if you’re eligible to receive assistance with the Cancer Hope Fund and to apply for aid, please contact The Hall-
Perrine Cancer Center Patient Resource Advocate at (319) 398-6039.

Our Mission

The Cancer Hope Fund was established to assist and support those in need who are receiving cancer treatment through The Hall-Perrine Cancer Center. It serves to meet emergency needs and complement other existing resources in the community.

How can the Cancer Hope Fund help?

The Cancer Hope Fund will provide funding for emergency needs of cancer patients through the purchase of various supplies and supplements to aid families in need during treatment.

Services will be available based on need and could include items such as:

  • Assistance to help lessen the cost of transportation
  • Cancer supportive supplies, including dressings and nutritional supplements
