Trust in Hope
Illinois CancerCare physicians and staff understand the demands that treatment can place on our patients and their families. We recognize that this could be especially true during the holidays.
In effort to engage in our mission of providing comprehensive, compassionate care, Illinois CancerCare Foundation’s Trust in Hope program provides Thanksgiving meals and holidays gifts for eligible patients and their families. Meals and gifts, along with wrapping supplies and a smile, are delivered straight to patient doors by our amazing volunteers.
Over the last 12 years, a total of 2,984 Thanksgiving meals have been delivered and 263 families with 481 children have received holiday gifts. In 2019 alone, Trust in Hope provided 380 Thanksgiving meals and holiday gifts for 51 children, all hand delivered by almost 40 volunteers.
Through this program, Illinois CancerCare Foundation is able to provide even more compassion, support and HOPE to our patients over the holidays.
Thank you to all our staff and donors who make this program possible!
