Women of Hope and A Kids Hope are both programs of Hope Abounds Charity that has dedicated itself to enhancing the life of a female, child or teen cancer patient and their families. Hope Abounds does this by providing support services, supporting educational opportunities, patient advocacy and financial assistance. These services are designed to help with the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of all that have been touched by cancer. By providing free of charge opportunities one can join with others to share their experiences, strengths and most importantly, their Hope!
About Hope Abounds
Due to the tremendous growth of Women of Hope over the past six years, we have developed a new program to provide for children and teens who have received a cancer diagnosis called A Kids Hope. Both of these programs, Women of Hope and A Kids Hope, are now operating under our corporate name of Hope Abounds, Inc. This latest expansion of services happened in the last quarter of 2015 and will be fully implemented through the year of 2016.
By helping to meet some of the basic needs of those who are battling a cancer diagnosis, Hope Abounds, Inc. is instrumental in allowing the patient and family to concentrate on being their own best advocate during their treatment. Hope Abounds provides educational and support programs, helping with patient advocacy and offering financial assistance. We offer hope that you are not alone in your journey!
We are enthusiastic to share that we are partnered with the Pediatric Staff at UNC Chapel Hill this year as we launch A Kids Hope programs. The scope of reach and influence for Hope Abounds, Inc. continues to grow as we partner with major hospital systems through the region to bring education, hope, awareness and hopeful prevention of cancer through education for future generations.
