Tricia’s Hope was founded to provide support to individuals making their way through cancer. It is a difficult journey. At Tricia’s Hope, we understand the stress cancer places on the cancer patient and their loved ones. Our goal is to keep the process of applying for assistance as simple as possible because at this time in your life, the last thing you need is another set of intimidating forms.
How does it work? Fill out the application online and submit. Hope Board of Directors will review your application. Please remember that all information is kept in the strictest of confidence and eligibility is not purely financially based. After the review of your application, you will be contacted by one of the directors. In most cases this is Tricia. An interview will take place to determine what and how Tricia’s Hope can best help you.
Cancer is really, really stressful. The grants provided by Tricia’s Hope, INC are intended to alleviate part of that stress, even if just a small part. Grant dollars are most often used to pay mortgage and rent payments, in addition to utility bills but we know relief can come in many forms. It might be a day full of memories made with loved ones at a restaurant and movie. It could be a relaxing trip to a spa, it could be a cleaning service for your home while you are at treatment or it could be groceries for your family so that your energy can be put towards fighting cancer and not the grocery budget. We know that gas station stops add up with extra trips to the doctor, too, so fuel cards are an acceptable use as well. At Tricia’s Hope we believe it is best if you, the person experiencing this trial, tell us how we can best help you. There is not a wrong answer.
Cancer is hard. Allowing people to help is really hard, too. I know this from experience. Thank you for allowing us to care for you and share God’s love with you in this way.
Many prayers and thanks,
President, Founder and Survivor
