Gifts of Hope helps support and assist cancer patients with limited financial resources by offering assistance with free lodging at Hope House, prescription and medical equipment, transportation costs, and help with medical and dental expenses. Gifts of Hope also offers support groups and activities to address the emotional, spiritual and physical journey for patients undergoing treatments, survivors and caregivers.
Hope House is a home away from home to those residing in one of the many small communities in West Texas driving to Midland to be treated at Allison Center or the West Texas Cancer Center through Texas Oncology. Hope House exists to serve those traveling for cancer treatments to ease the burden of commuting during that time. Gifts of Hope provides lodging at no cost to those patients through the operation of Hope House. Hope House, which is adjacent to Allison Cancer Center in Midland, has eight bedrooms and can room up to 18 cancer patients and their caregivers at one time. Each room has two twin beds, its own private bathroom, television set and accommodations for clothing and supplies. Hope House has a common living area and full size kitchen available to our guests during their stay. There is also a weekly prayer group that meets and prays with our residents. The house provides a warm and loving atmosphere for cancer patients and their families.
Prescription Assistance & Durable Medical Equipment
As a patient battles cancer, the need for various medications to alleviate the side effects can be great. Gifts of Hope helps assist with the copay or cost of pharmaceutical prescriptions for qualifying cancer patients currently undergoing treatment and for the subsequent twelve months. Gifts of Hope also helps with the cost or copay of durable medical equipment such as colostomy bags or special toiletry needs, nutritional supplements, and bras and / or prosthesis needed.
Gifts of Hope assists cancer patients with the expensive costs of dental exams and procedures needed in order to receive treatment as well as help those with poor oral hygiene or decay as a direct result of cancer treatments.
Assistance is provided for patients residing in Midland who are unable to facilitate their own transportation or pay the cost of reliable transportation to and from treatments and appointments at the Allison Cancer Center. For the cancer patient traveling outside of the Permian Basin, we provide gas gift cards to help ease the burden of transportation cost.
The costs associated with various medical exams, tests, or procedures needed in order to begin cancer treatment or to continue receiving cancer treatment can be a huge financial burden. Gifts of Hope helps alleviate those necessary costs and urgent examinations for those without health insurance benefits and those not covered by their current insurance.
Gifts of Hope serves lunch to those undergoing infusion treatments at the Allison Cancer Center. Meals are prepared and served Monday thru Friday in the infusion room to patients and their caregivers by our team of volunteers. This is one of our most utilized services we provide.
Support Groups & Networking
At Gifts of Hope, we address the physical, emotional, and mental needs of our patients. We host several support groups that provide information, guidance, and an understanding of living with cancer.
