HCF has funds specific for heart disease, cancer, diabetes, neonatal intensive care and others. Here are just a few examples of the ways we are able to provide life-changing hope to our patients when they need it most:

  • Help purchase expensive medical equipment that isn’t covered by insurance
  • Provide much-needed anti-nausea medication for patients undergoing chemotherapy
  • Purchase bus tickets for family members to be able to visit a patient at the end of life
  • Pay utility bills for someone who isn’t able to afford their medical bills plus their regular expenses
  • Buy gas cards for patients who live outside Tupelo and can’t afford the gas to drive back and forth daily for chemotherapy or radiation treatments
  • Help someone who needs to get out of a dangerous home situation into safe housing
  • Pay for baby necessities, holiday meals for parents, Wee Care Room items, and bereavement materials and funeral expenses for babies who pass away
  • Provide screening mammograms for uninsured patients
