We hope that the new decade has started positively. 2020 marks the 23rd year of the Building Hope Women’s Golf Tournament. Trinity Health Foundation appreciates the businesses and organizations who partner with us through their support of these two annual golf tournaments.
The event raises money for the CancerCare Patient Assistance Fund. In 2019, the total income generated by the tournament was more than $40,000. More importantly, last calendar year nearly $242,000 from this fund was spent to improve the lives of Trinity CancerCare Center patients. The CancerCare Patient Assistance Fund provides direct financial support as well as in-kind gifts such as gas cards, wigs and compression garments. The fund also underwrites therapeutic programs such as yoga, art therapy and writing therapy.
The more money we raise, the more money we can use to positively impact lives. One of the patients who received help from the CancerCare Patient Assistance Fund sent us the following:
“I appreciate your kindness and caring for the most generous gifts I received after having breast surgery and then radiation treatments at the CancerCare Center. Thank you so much for the coupon for a tank of gas, a gift card from Walmart and a personal check to help with expenses. What you did meant so much to me as I am on a fixed income and every bit helps. All the doctors, nurses and social worker, Cassandra, were so nice & helpful.” - T.W.
