1.   HelpHOPELive programs/funds

  • Wherever the need is greatest

    When you make a gift to HelpHOPELive you tangibly improve the lives of families facing devastating uninsured medical expenses related to transplantation or catastrophic injury (spinal cord or traumatic brain). These gifts help HelpHOPELive to provide fundraising guidance, patient resources and support.     

  • Emergency Grant Fund 

    Your gift to the HelpHOPELive Emergency Grant Fund benefits patients facing a medical crisis for whom fundraising is not an option. Emergency grants provide a safety net to patients living closest to the edge to pay for items such as the next dose of life-sustaining medication, travel to critical medical care, gaps in Medicare coverage, expenses of living donors, adaptive equipment and ramps.
