How We Help
During the COVID 19 pandemic, using hospital staff with access to patients, we offered weekly groceries, take out food, and laundry services to patients who weren't allowed any outside visitors. Since then, we've continued the program to bring relief to patients being treated out of state or with little to no caregiver support.
Each tribe member selects items that have been chosen by other survivors and caregivers from our online store to help make the inpatient stay and ongoing cancer journey easier.
Room Welcome Bags
Patients being admitted for over a week's stay on the BMT/ONC floors are welcomed to their room with a silk pillowcase to help ease tender scalps during hair loss, a DAZ BOG gift card for caregivers and an informational card explaining the various ways we can help during their stay.
In memory of Kari Lee, tribe members receive bears from our sponsors at Build-a-Bear for themselves and their kids at home, creating a physical connection between them while separated during treatment.
Joining forces with other non-profits to provide experiences and support for our tribe members, including equine therapy for cancer survivors with our friends at Believe Ranch & Rescue, grub hub gift cards for our friends at Brent's Place, and bone marrow drives with our subsidiary NPO Genny's Hope.
Volunteers donate gifts for select tribe members and their families, ensuring they are able to fulfill holiday wishes with loved ones in addition to providing holiday gift bags for those in the hospital over the holidays.
Quarterly gatherings where members can socialize away from the hospital and get to know others who have faced similar challenges.
Filling the Gaps
Providing both inpatient and outpatient BMT/ONC floors with nurse requested items that will be available to all of their patients including nail files, PICC shower covers, night lights, ear plugs, sleep masks, word puzzles and more, and supplying Admission Kits and soft blankets to patients admitted unexpectedly through the ER or outpatient facility.
Select patients facing no more treatment options are offered the chance to create a memory for themselves and loved ones.
