HOPE is a non profit organization that does tremendous things for those in need of help. A diagnosis of cancer can create unforeseen financial burdens for patients, particularly those who endure prolonged periods of treatment. HOPE seeks to alleviate the costs associated with prescription medications by connecting patients in Northwest Arkansas with company-sponsored assistance programs, referring patients to support programs and through direct financial assistance given by HOPE to patients in need.

HOPE also offers emotional support. Feelings of confusion, fear, overwhelming, and sadness are often experienced by cancer patients and their loved ones. HOPE’s programs and services can often alleviate some of the concerns. HOPE’s professional staff offers emotional support ranging from a kind word or a listening ear to one-on-one, couples or family sessions with a mental health professional. This service is free of charge to those in need.

Clinical trials hold the key to breakthroughs in the treatment and prevention of cancer. Currently, HOPE serves as Northwest Arkansas’ only site management organization, assisting local doctors with the development and management of cancer clinical trials.

It is my honor to serve as a board member for HOPE. The number of people HOPE helps is remarkable. Obviously, HOPE relies on community based foundations and individual contributions. HOPE also accepts memorial and honorarium contributions.

HOPE’s programs are sponsored by the Cancer Challenge, Ozark Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure and the Northwest Arkansas Community. If you would like to learn more about HOPE, please feel free to call me or email information@hopenwa.org. You can also call HOPE at 479-571-HOPE (4673).
