Cancer continues to be a significant health problem. The Sule & Washington Hope Fund (SWHF) provides financial assistance to prevent incidence, reduce health disparities, and alleviate side effects of breast and ovarian cancer treatment. We partner with qualified health care professionals to ensure receipt of screenings, diagnostic tests, prescribed garments, medications and supplies, professional counseling, and rehabilitative therapies to eliminate occurrence, decrease disparities in health access, reduce suffering, and improve the ability to carry on with everyday life.
Research findings have demonstrated that mind matters in cancer survival. Interventions that provide emotional and social support help patients adjust to their condition, uplift their spirits, and can lead to better outcomes. Our Comfort & Care bag program was developed to symbolize hope and show support during a difficult time. Duffel bags for men and tote bags for women are filled with practical care and comfort items to boost patient’s spirits and make treatments more bearable.
“The last thing patients should be challenged with is getting to and from their medical treatment” Alan Balch, PhD

Transportation to and from treatment is an important and often overlooked aspect of cancer care.
Out of pocket costs related to transportation expenses continue to cause financial hardship resulting in treatment
delay or withdrawal. Our Fuel For Treatment gas gift card program serves to relieve some of the financial burden of transportation for qualified Georgia residents so they can access necessary and appropriate cancer care.
