The Beginnings is about the start of Hope Abounds’
 program Women of Hope.

Women of Hope was introduced in Wilmington, NC in March 2010.

In 2016 services have been expanded to meet the needs of children and teens diagnosed with cancer and their families through A Kids Hope.  Both of these programs operate under the corporate name of Hope Abound, Inc.

A cancer diagnosis can be devastating to the way a family is able to function normally on a day to day basis.  The average time for chemotherapy treatment is 4-6 months.  Some treatments can last a year.  This may start after a surgical procedure that requires recovery time prior to the start of chemotherapy.

If the diagnosed patient is a single income earner, or one half of a duel income family, the economic effect is significant.  When a child or teen is diagnosed, the same issue arises when one parent needs to be with the patient throughout the treatment.  Taking that parent out of the day to day schedule has emotional effects on other minor children within the home.  Who will take the other children to after school activities?  Who will make dinners, go to the grocery, maintain the secure home atmosphere for the children not diagnosed?  How can Dad earn the necessary income and maintain the home?

Deductibles for insurance are due at the start of treatment.  Most are significant for those trying to keep the monthly premiums low.  The average cost is $1,318 out of pocket before insurance begins to cover part of the bills.  Each doctor visit requires a copay.  The average copay for a specialist doctor visit is $30-$50.  Procedures needed for appropriate diagnosis that include an MRI, X-rays, radiation may not be fully covered.  The estimated cost of initial chemotherapy is $7,000.  More than one round of chemotherapy may be necessary.  This is the reality of a cancer diagnosis.

Financial support is available for patients and families that qualify during active treatment.  This is in addition to emotional, educational, patient advocacy, and spiritual support. The type of support can be specified by the patient, parent, or immediate family affected.

Hope Abounds offers educational programs to help guide the patient diagnosed to be the best advocate for themselves.  When accepted into our program the patient is offered a personal patient advocate, to help encourage and identify what will be the most effective way for Hope Abounds to make a difference.  We understand the overwhelming feeling that comes with a diagnosis.  We are here to offer HOPE!  

Thank you for your support!
