My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Mission of Hope Cancer Fund, Jackson, MI, USA
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.
