Mission of Hope Cancer Fund, (MHCF), is a both a unique and effective nonprofit. They provide financial assistance to cancer patients enabling them to fight the daily battle this dreadful illness demands. No, MHCF does have labs filled with research doctors, but that do have the gas card for the patient that without it, would miss their chemo-therapy treatment. They do have the night's stay at a motel close to the hospital that makes it possible for the family to travel the long distance for treatment. They understand that cancer attacks not only the cells in the human body but equally attacks the family's financial stability by robbing them of paychecks, and increasing both medical and non-medical costs alike.

Founded by a cancer survivor, Rock Mangus, MHCF understands the plight and burden faced by not only caner patients, but their families as well. This is a non-profit that "puts their money where their words are" daily. One only needs to look at the number of former clients now serving as volunteers for the organization to measure the true impact that MHCF makes.

Having experienced the impact of cancer within my family, I understand the magnitude of the shadow that cancer throws upon not only the patient but their family as well.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Win the lotto and fund the organization through a foundation.

My father died from lung cancer about 16 years ago. We know how hard it is on the family to try to give him all the care that he needs and not have any help financially. Awhile later we met Rock Mangus.. the executive director of Mission of Hope Cancer Fund. My husband was able to help with one of Rock's first fundraisers. I have volunteered for MHCF, now I am a part time employee. I have seen first hand how clients have been helped. I have been able to talk to clients and understand their grief and fear. The one thing that I love the most about this organization is how much Rock truly cares about the clients. He is the director of the organization, but still takes time to hand deliver the gas cards to client that are local. He goes to clients benefit dinners. He is involved with every aspect of every client. We need help though. If you or anyone you know could give time or financial help please let us know.... MHCF@cancerfund.org

I would change nothing. It would be nice to have more help to be able to help more clients.
