Helping Hearts and Hands



Breast cancer patients are our first priority! Circle of Hope is committed to helping breast cancer patients financially who have had to quit work to receive treatment and struggle financially with a breast cancer diagnosis. 

Financial Requirements for Help: Patients must be in active treatment and their needs must be met by other programs first. For example, a patient has to quit work to receive
life saving treatments. The patient may not be covered by insurance, co-pays or hospital financial help. Some patients may have high co-pays.The organization does not duplicate services by other programs, as all patients have needs no matter where they live.

Financial Assistance falls in two areas: breast cancer medical bills for treatment and assistance for daily living expenses: rent, mortgage, utilities, food and gas cards when not available from other resources. The organization pays the providers for bills and only gas and grocery cards are given to the patient. Contact the organization directly to see if funds are available in your area, as there may be limited resources in certain areas due to designated monies from donors and grants.

All Breast Cancer Patients in need of Survivorship Skills, Education and Engagement Activities are covered:  Circle of Hope provides free financial counseling/guidance, emotional/feel good support to all breast cancer and gynecological cancer patients. They have activities that patients can participate in related to arts/crafts, sporting events such as hiking, biking, jumping, golf, bowling, walking, running, dragon boat racing and much more.The organization has private pink parties and other participation parties. These may include going to stations, participating in an activity they have never done before. The arts and crafts include knitting, sewing, crocheting, photography, making crafts and cards with kids. Individuals maybe involved in organizing an event, serving on a committee, on the board of directors, participating in a health fair, speaking at an event, listening to speakers, and attending workshops or putting them on.

Donated Money to Circle of Hope:  It is in available, designated accounts, and it is not invested. Circle of Hope has limited funds, and they want to help when the time arises. One hundred per cent of the donated monies as designated goes to help patients. We are a non-salaried organization, and we get sponsorship's to cover fundraising expenses.

Feel Good Boxes and Educational Materials: Circle of Hope sends out a feel good box that often contains a chemo cap, prayer shawl, slippers, and breast cancer educational materials (flyers, cards, book, prayer poem), book, booklets, and other items. Boxes may vary. These are sent to breast and gynecological cancer patients in northern MN and northern WI. Chemo caps are given out to cancer centers and sent out by Heidi's Mastectomy Shop from Circle of Hope.

It takes a village to make a difference. Our referrals come from cancer centers, patients, WDIO TV, KBJR, Midwest Radio, NBCC, The Breast Cancer Awareness Association, ACS, Fox 21, Duluth News Tribune, other breast cancer organizations and organizations. 

Every donor gets recognition because it is the combined efforts from the many individuals that makes this mission possible. This organization is a grass roots effort by way over 125 people and businesses who donate and serve our communities. From the patients we serve: Thank You!

-"Peggy dear, it is over six weeks since I opened a box and took out the most glorious Caring Shawl I had ever seen. Did you know I consult and write about the Amish in America? The quilt was of pure Amish Colors! Deep pure purple, rich green, perfect blue. This warm and love-made shawl could hang on any line with any Amish dresses freshly hand washed and look like it belonged there. To me, this was a sign that my Angel Band had led me to you for a reason. The shawl is wrapped around me every night. The 'girl toys'were fun! (love those pedicure toe sponges) and the very important literature tucked into that box is still here on my side table.......Today is the last unemployment check dropped into my account, and now there will be no more support from that source. Friends have been working hard to help and get me enrolled in SSD....I am asking Circle of Hope for help. Let me know.....with all gratitude and thanks!"

coming in, I called and searched everywhere to try to get any kind of help, always to reach a dead end. Having
 terminal cancer is horrible bu even worse explaining it and then hearing "sorry, can't help you." "I wish there
 were more organizations like yours to be able to help more cancer patients. What are people to do to pay for 
groceries, gas, toiletries, car payments, insurance, loans, phone bills in general; they don't stop because of
 cancer." "Thank you so much, you really brightened my day and got rid of my bad toothaches. Bless all of you!"

for a place for me to live through a Susan G. Komen grant."
-"Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for you, your encouragement, your gifts and your help. My cancer 
was the icing on a miserable 3 years of crap. The shawl, the book, the ornament, were the first encouragement
I had felt for a long time. Bless you, thank you, words seem banal. My heart is so full of so much Kindness. 
What you did, what you do, is amazing. You are a gift to all who suffer. You helped me to begin again. x0 xo."

bought myself some purple and white gloves. I read your book in 3 nights. I felt like I know you now, like a 
friend. Thank your Auntie and yourself for sharing your feelings and thoughts with others. God bless everyone
from Circle of Hope for all they do."
-"To whom it may concern: Thank you again for your prompt response for help with my medical bills. Your 
organization is a blessing."

-"That is fantastic. Thank you so much! Thank you for your assistance. I will not forget Circle of Hope."

done without you and your help.""Your kindness is appreciated more than words can say.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

everything you have done and continue to do for others in a devastating situation."

blessed and hope fills my heart. The book is a real treasurer and the shawl reminds me

hope to one day I will be able to return the hope to someone else.....God Bless You All."

Michele."
-"The Circle of Hope helped with their support in so many ways. Donations,
advertising, a solid shoulder to lean on, and speaking at the event. Peggy Anderson,
of Circle of Hope, helped out in more ways than she will ever understand. The
support kept coming afterwards, too. I really do not think our family could have
gotten through this without her."
-"Mom got your care package. Thank you so much. She loves it. We even started listening to the CD today."

your help. Its greatly appreciated, you are truly an amazing woman."

insurance to cover all my expenses for surgery and radiation. I cannot imagine how horrible it would
be for someone who did not have insurance."

and we miss her so much but the thought that in her name-others are being helped-well-that is how she lived.

even have money for a funeral-whose to pay for that. I just don't want those left behind to have to

almost impossible. Thank you for accepting my application for consideration."

am thankful for that.....Again...thank u so much."
-"Thank you so much for the beautiful hats you donated to our patients. They have been appreciated by so many and they are simply beautiful. Thank you for all you do."-The St. Lukes Cancer Staff
-Here is from one of our former patients:
Can those who care take a moment and vote? This organization and Peggy (and her Husband and the band of volunteers) make a huge difference on dwindling funding (every non profit is struggling!). There is increasing need in this area. I was diagnosed the first time with a rare form of breast cancer in 2011, underwent radiation and after multiple lumps showed up again after, a double mastectomy, failed reconstruction, more surgeries and another diagnosis of the same cancer on the other side (extremely rare, only a handful of cases have been recorded that we can find).... This organization not only helped me when I needed it most, but quite possibly saved my life. They are the only major non-profit that provides this kind of assistance (helping fill the gaps that every cancer patient faces eventually and many don't have the resources/assistance/Go Fund Me pages/fundraisers thrown on their behalf). I see her working tirelessly to put on everything from small to huge events, educating the public, working on grants and attending resource fairs as well as get community supporters - businesses of all types from Jeff Foster trucking, restaurants, banks, to even LSCC classes.... to try to cover the gaps all cancer patients have. Most people don't think about all the things insurance doesn't cover (hotel rooms/gas/food assistance for out of area specialist visits which sometimes leave patients out of town for days/weeks and having to cover costs themselves, co-pays/percentages not covered by insurance, household bills to keep on the electricity and heat for patients who are in treatment or just out and aren't able to return to work yet and financially struggling, medical supplies we need in bulk but because they are "OTC" they aren't covered - unless you have angels like my nurses/doctors who always have loaded me up with supplies they can when I tell them I need help with whatever... Even weeks after they tell me to come back in and they will restock what I need and know I can't afford to purchase boxes of AB pads/surgical tape/etc.... Just as a start of what they help with!!) Check their website for their application process (includes notes from Doctors to validate status and all bills that can be paid directly from the organization are - medical/hotel/etc so that they aren't just handing a check hoping it goes to what it is supposed to...)... It's a well oiled machine run by a passionate and tirelessly working woman/team who provides something that makes all the difference when things are already overwhelming to the patient. Speaking as someone who got help to cover the gaps I needed assistance with, I don't think my second cancer would've been caught nor would I have gotten the proper care/treatment for much of my rare cancer without their help and very quick and efficient help! I wrote letters of support and thank you to their overall grant programs and will always continue to volunteer and give back as I can. You taking a few minutes to vote could make all the difference! And even better? Please feel free to share this and my story on your own pages, and ask for votes... The more that re-post and ask for a click, the larger the difference we can make! Please help! The votes are finalized Monday! Please help!! Thank you in advance!

2.Homeless Breast Cancer Account-Patients currently going through treatment. This is to help with groceries, gas, rent and utilities.
Balance: 0

3.These are Circle of Hope Accounts: 
This is for patients currently going through treatment for breast cancer surgery, chemo, radiation and have had to stop working. This would be active treatment. It would not include taking prescription medications for 5 years or for those who have already recovered from surgery.This is "short term" care, a month or two. We look at each case and often cover rent and utilities. 
-We do not pay bills that occurred before breast cancer. 
-We do not replace social service help. We will guide patients to resources in their community. 
-If their medical provider has gas and grocery cards the person should ask them first.
- We will help terminal Stage IV breast cancer patients who have not yet received SSD because they are often still going through chemo and radiation. They often cannot work.
