The HOPE Chapter is a nonprofit organization created by cancer survivors to assist those who are battling cancer. Founded in 2012, we began by helping friends and family in Jackson and Dekalb County. We are excited to announce that within our first two years, we have been blessed to help cancer patients across North Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee! We look forward to continous growth in the future and to be able to help many more.
While there are many wonderful foundations that raise money for research, we are here to raise money for those who are currently fighting the disease. The diagnosis of cancer is devastating in itself, but combined with the added financial hardship that many face, it can be totally crippling. We want to reduce this stress by offering financial help to patients while they are going through treatments and surgeries. We want the patients to concentrate on healing rather than worry about money for their utilities, groceries or gas.
Our office is located at 92 East Main Street in Rainsville, next to OxyMed. We have been fortunate to have many professionals donate their time and services to this wonderful cause.
Please take the time to let us know of any suggestions or fundraiser ideas that you may have. If anyone would like to volunteer we would love for you to join us!
