OUR MISSION

The mission of Circle of Hope, Inc, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit charity, is to provide emotional support and financial assistance for medical expenses for uninsured and underinsured individuals with Breast Cancer who live in, work in, or receive treatment in the Santa Clarita Valley.

WHY WE HELP

Individuals with breast cancer are sometimes unable to work due to side effects of treatment. They may be unable to pay their normal bills due to the high costs of medications, co-payments, or insurance premiums. Some will not qualify for public assistance programs during cancer treatments. These financial burdens are devastating to individuals struggling with breast cancer. Patients should be able to focus on recovery, not debts. Circle of Hope wants to help.

We are in a health insurance crisis. Nearly 16% of the USA population lacks health insurance. Premiums for a family of four have increased 25% within the last 5 years, with often inadequate coverage. When you add in 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime, financial hardship is inevitable. ( Statistical references upon request)

Circle of Hope, Inc. believes that providing financial and emotional support will improve the quality of life and increase the individual's chance of success in their battle against breast cancer.

 

HOW WE HELP

We help the public through our three service programs: Second Opinion Assistance, Financial Medical Aid and our Compassionate Angel Program (CAP) for practical emotional support. Individual applications for assistance are reviewed by our Board, who determines the distribution of funds based upon need and debt ratio.

Funds may be granted for the following:

  • Insurance co-payments
  • Insurance/Cobra premiums
  • Deductibles for medications
  • Pharmacy expenses|
  • Second Opinion

Other needs as approved

A SAMPLE OF OUR HELP

Funds paid out to provide financial relief:

Eight rounds of chemo & doctor visits
COBRA premiums
$5,343 for 2 rounds of chemo & lab costs plus qualification for State Aid
Second opinion for a Stage IV patient
$350 in co-payments for one year
20% of medical costs not covered by insurance, averaging $360 per mo, 1 yr

Costs can run over $200,000 per year for breast cancer treatment. Insurance rates and medicines are going up. Survivorship is expensive. We provide hope so patients can focus on recovery, not debt.

Walking for Hope 5K & People's Choice Car Show (April)
Theatrical Tea (October)
Vegas Style New Year's Eve (December 31)
