Supporting Cancer Patients' Journey: The Virginia Capital Trail Fundraiser

Dear Supporters,

At the Hawthorne Cancer Foundation, we are dedicated to easing the burdens faced by cancer patients and their families throughout their treatment journey. We understand that accessing treatment can be challenging, particularly when it comes to transportation needs. That's why we are thrilled to announce our annual fundraiser, on the Virginia Capital Trail, aimed at raising funds for our discretionary transportation fund.

Purpose of the Fundraiser:

The Virginia Capital Trail Fundraiser serves a vital purpose in supporting cancer patients' transportation needs. Proceeds from this event will go directly to our discretionary fund, which provides financial assistance to patients struggling with transportation expenses. Cancer treatment often requires frequent visits to medical facilities, which can be logistically and financially challenging for many patients and their families. Our goal is to alleviate some of this stress by offering support in the form of gas cards, Uber/Lyft cards, and miscellaneous expenses such as food and other emergency needs via VISA cards.

Why Transportation Support Matters:

Transportation is a significant barrier for many cancer patients, especially those living in rural areas or lacking reliable access to transportation. Without adequate support, patients may face delays or missed appointments, which can negatively impact their treatment outcomes. By assisting with transportation expenses, we aim to ensure that every patient can access the care they need, regardless of their financial situation or geographical location.

How You Can Help:

Your support is crucial in making this fundraiser a success and in providing much-needed assistance to cancer patients in our community. Here are a few ways you can get involved:

  1. Donate: Every donation, no matter how big or small, makes a difference. Your contribution will directly impact the lives of cancer patients by providing them with the transportation support they need to access treatment.

At the Hawthorne Cancer Foundation, we believe that no cancer patient should have to face barriers to accessing treatment. Through initiatives like the Virginia Capital Trail Fundraiser, we are committed to providing practical support to ensure that every patient can focus on their health without worrying about transportation expenses. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those battling cancer in our community.

Thank you for your continued support.
