  • Wellmont's cancer patient assistance fund keeps the lights on

    Support the patient assistance fund.

    Imagine undergoing cancer treatment – you’re sick, scared and fighting for your life. Now imagine, in the middle of treatment, the financial toll has become so extreme you can no longer afford gas, electricity or car payments.

    Far too many people in our region don’t have to imagine. For them, situations like this are a frightening reality.

    To help make such challenging circumstances more bearable, Wellmont Foundation has established a cancer patient assistance fund. Thanks to your support, patients facing hardship can now receive help. Last year, more than $30,000 was donated to help cancer patients make ends meet during these difficult times. These contributions helped patients pay their mortgages, car payments, utility and electric bills, gas and even helped buy much-needed medications.

    To further support the cancer patient assistance fund, a benefit concert was held in September. Christian comedian, singer and songwriter Mark Lowry took the stage at Paramount Center for the Arts in Bristol to help raise funds for this worthy cause.

    “When someone receives a cancer diagnosis, financial challenges are often a very real part of the package,” said Sue Lindenbusch, the cancer institute’s vice president. “Donations provided through this fund empower the cancer institute to enhance its assistance to patients, giving them strength for today and hope for tomorrow.”

    Your gift to the patient assistance fund makes it possible for us to provide the best care possible to our patients and their families.
