About Us

Powered by a committee of motivated volunteers, The Hope for Strength Breast Cancer Fund is a designated fund through the Pocono Health Foundation designed to benefit local Pocono Mountains-area male and female breast cancer patients at the Dale and Frances Hughes Cancer Center. 100% of the money raised by our fundraisers and awareness events, as well as any generous donations generated throughout the year, goes directly to this fund. The purpose of the fund is to minimize the financial and emotional impact of a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

For patients at the center who qualify and demonstrate a need for help, the Hope for Strength Breast Cancer fund will cover certain expenses. Expenses that may be covered by Hope for Strength funds are basic living expenses which are not covered by insurance. Basic living expenses may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Transportation (Gas Cards, Bus & Taxi Fees)
  • Rent
  • Food/Groceries
  • Child Care (Babysitter Fees, Temporary Child Care Charges)
  • Utilities
  • Medication

The maximum benefit any one patient may receive is $500. If you are, or know of, someone who may need assistance during their treatment at the Dale and Frances Hughes Cancer Center, please speak with the social worker to request help.

If you are someone who would like to donate to The Hope for Strength Breast Cancer Fund, on behalf of breast cancer patients and survivors, we appreciate your donation.
