The Dr. Joe Rhoades Cancer Compassion Fund provides support to patients and families beyond what the hospital is able to provide. Assistance is based on financial need and is designed to respond to the unique medical needs of patients and their families, which can include gas cards for those who travel far distances, overnight accommodations and special treatment related needs.
For someone in the battle of their life, these expenses can quickly become a financial hardship and an overwhelming distraction from their healing process. The Compassion Fund provides the ability to help patients and families who need that extra little bit of assistance in order to help them live the best quality of life while going through treatment. In addition, these funds help bring peace of mind during a time that is extremely stressful.
You can make a gift online or by contacting the Mary Greeley Foundation at 515-239-2147. When designating your gift, please select "other" and type "Dr. Joe Rhoades Cancer Compassion Fund."
