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 with a breast cancer diagnosis. They also help All breast cancer patients in need of Survivorship Skills.

Patients must be in active treatment and their needs must be met by other programs first. The organization does not duplicate services by other programs, as all patients have needs no matter where they live.

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

Circle of Hope provides free financial counseling/guidance, emotional/feel good support to all breast 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. They 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.

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

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, ACS, other breast cancer organizations and from advertising. 

Every donor gets recognition because it is the combined efforts of many that makes this help possible. 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!"

become sick get so behind on bills, worry about getting food, gas to go to appointments and everyone says

to be caught up and starting fresh in June."

-"A very special thank you for being so very thoughtful. Thanks."

-"It is such a help ad blessing that there is an organization like yours. When I lost my job and had no money
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!"
"P.S. Thank you Peggy A for the phone calls and being supportive!"
-"There is Hope."
-"Amen in Gratitude"
-"I think circle of Hope and anyone who can help breast cancer patients is so wonderful. After working a person's whole life and ending up being sick, with money and depending on others really destroys one's total reason for living."
-"Dearest Peggy-Our hearts are overflowing with gratitude, thank you for helping our sister, You have been an inspiration and special blessing to our lives."
-"Thank you for the beautiful shawl, which was such a lovely surprise. Please thank whoever made it, as I truly
 appreciate the time, effort and compassion such a gift represents. The materials were also much appreciated 
and very useful. Gratefully...."
-"I was homeless after being in intensive care from breast cancer surgery, an infection. Circle of Hope helped pay
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."  
-"Thank you for your help with my breast surgery bills. It is a great birthday present."

wonderful work!!!"

big heart."

-"I received your package and was extremely moved by your kindness. I instantly wrapped the scarf around me
and felt so much comfort. I can't even explain. Ironically it was purple and white and just the day before I 
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."
-"Thank you for the thank you. Really you think they could help again what a life saver that would be this time."
-"That is fantastic. Thank you so much! Thank you for your assistance. I will not forget Circle of Hope."
-"I can't express enough my gratitude or you organization. I don't know what I would have
done without you and your help.""Your kindness is appreciated more than words can say.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."
-"Thank you for showing such great interest in my story and for taking the time and energy
to share it with others, I very much appreciate it."

encouragement will remain with me through the following year. I am so very grateful for
everything you have done and continue to do for others in a devastating situation."
-"Thank you so much for the gifts you sent. They mean so much!"
-"I could never thank you enough for helping me out with my medical bills. I feel so
blessed and hope fills my heart. The book is a real treasurer and the shawl reminds me
of those who continue to keep me in their prayers. I am coming up on my one year mark
and hope all tests come back with good results. Keep the Circle of Hope going, and I
hope to one day I will be able to return the hope to someone else.....God Bless You All."
-"Thank you for your support during my mom's illness."
-"Thank you so much for helping me out."
-"Thank you so much for the lovely surprise package with the prayer shawl and the book.
I am anxious to read the book and the shawl is precious. I thank you for both. This is a
very scary time in my life. My skin is burning & peeling from the radiation-but I must go on.

-"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."
"Everything looks great o the site. We love it. Thank you. We all thank you so much for all
your help. Its greatly appreciated, you are truly an amazing woman."

-"I have terminal breast cancer (metastatic), am far behind on loan payments, have borrowed money
for gas, prescriptions, unable to get any help, after working my whole life, I am unable to work right
-"I am enclosing a check as a contribution. I was most fortunate to have Medicare and supplementary
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."
-"Thank you so much for the memorial donation in our mother's name. She was always thinking of others
and we miss her so much but the thought that in her name-others are being helped-well-that is how she lived. 
All the best."

I have uncured."

help for food and gas. the application was quick and easy as was the response from them."

"Thank you so much for the help. You don't know what it meant to me."
-"It is so difficult dealing with end of life issues and wondering how to live month by month. I don't
even have money for a funeral-whose to pay for that. I just don't want those left behind to have to
deal with a burden such as that. Cancer is scary and very hard but when adding the near poverty, it's
almost impossible. Thank you for accepting my application for consideration."
-"Thank you so much. This all helps a great deal. I have met many wonderful people along this journey and 
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

Circle of Hope Announces 3 Peggy Rydberg Volunteers for 2014-2015 with Plaques on Oct. 19, 2015:
Peggy Rydberg died of metastatic breast cancer, one of the founding members of Circle of Hope.
These awards are to recognize these individuals who have helped out the organization by going out of their
way to participate. it is because of these volunteers, we have impacted patients lives, and made our message 
heard in the community.

1.George Piece from Jeff Foster Trucking Inc., Superior drives the Circle of Hope Jeff Foster Truck all over. Her gives out our Circle of Hope website cards and promotes our mission. George calls the truck, "The Pink Lady" or "Pinky." The father of 8 children George knows how important this issue is to women and some men with genetic breast cancer. George brings the truck to many of our Circle of Hope events and donates his time.
  George has brought the truck to Rockin for Hope concerts, Dare Me for Charity in Blaine, MN. He also participated in our Pink Flying tutu team. George jumped and jumped forty feet in the air. We can't thank him enough for the memories this event brought. You just don't know how hard it is to get people to jump 40 feet in the air.
  He was also with a large Jeff Foster team for the UV Splash Color Dash. He wore his pink tutu. He brought the truck as well.
  George in the most brutal weather drove the truck and pulled the float in the Christmas City of the North Parade. George and Tom Porter wore Santa Caps. Peg and Jim's UMD Pharmacy students decorated the very large float-Pharmacy at The North Pole. It was quite a work of art. This was a Kodak moment for them.
  He also pulled the East Key Club Float in the 4th of July Parade in Superior. It was fun and a meaningful event for the Key Club students and his own children.
  The truck has been brought to other events such as Julie's benefit, Get ER Done, Annual Pink Run, The Lake Superior Dragon Boat races promoting breast cancer awareness and adverting Circle of Hope. We thank George and Jeff Foster Trucking Inc. for making a difference int he lives of others.
2.Christina Luoma is a supervisor at United Health Care. She has been on The Many Faces of Breast Cancer dragon boat teams for several years and will be taking a more active role next year. She goes out of her way to help us and has continued to make additional offers.
  She was on our Dare Me for Charity Team, also wearing a pink tutu. She got three other members to sign up and be on the team. The problem was then they changed the dae on it. She took time out of her busy life of running races to participate in this event.
  Christina formed a UV Color Splash Dash team as well.
  She does not stop at this, she has been a volunteer at two concerts, sold raffle tickets, and helps to promote our agent. She applied for a grant to help us. She has truly volunteered more than 80 hours. 
  We are grateful for her support and friendship.

3.Toni Marie Piazza came into our life as a breast cancer patient after having two other cancers. She has truly made a difference in the Circle of Hope in many ways. We especially loved her TV interview. She is our new spokesperson for Circle of Hope.
  She helped with the UV Splash Color Dash when it felt a little overwhelming to the coordinator. She helped by meeting with me, and helping to make organizational decisions. She got us a photographer, one of two food vendors and much more. She had 46 people sign up for her team. ($1610.00) If they didn't sign up she asked them to make a donation. She got an additional $100.00 in the mail. She organized the After Party at Grizzly's with two donated kegers and one raffle item. She got several banners made and she also got $300.00 worth of donations.
  Toni has offered to help with sponsorship's for our UV Splash Color Dash on September 12, 2015 in Bayfront Festival Park. She has a lot of experience and lets me know various view points from her experience as an event planner. She presently is the event/advertising planner for the Greater Downtown Council.

Circle of Hope is grateful to its many volunteers. It is because of our volunteers that we can make a difference in the lives of others. We have many other volunteers that help with clothing sales, sewing, knitting and so much more. It is by volunteerism that we do make a difference.

Volunteer Board Members:
Janice Wallace for getting an exceptional amount of items for the clothing sale and the silent auction this year! She also got us some sponsors for the dragon boat races and concert. She has been instrumental in keeping the records balanced to the penny for the CPA/book-keeper. Thank you Janice for all your hard work.

Terri Newman, owner of Terri's Treasurers donates to Circle of Hope fundraisers and patients benefits. After the Anderson's she is the 2nd largest board donor since Circle of Hope's inception.  Terri hardly ever misses a Circle of Hope sponsored event. Terri has been a very engaged board member for 4 years, serving on the board, chair of the fundraising committee and board chair. She rarely misses an event, retreat, fundraising committee or board meeting. We thank Terri for all she has done to move the mission forward!

Peg and Jim Anderson: Jim never misses an event for Circle of Hope. Correction, he missed Ladies Night Out. Men were not invited. He did not go to the Spa Party either, for women only. Jim is the best "Voluntentold" Volunteer! Peggy puts in uncountable hours day in and day and out. Peggy has never missed an event sponsored by Circle of Hope and others for Circle of Hope.

Pat Esse is Vice Chair of Circle of Hope, she has gotten lots of donations through the years from clothing to silent auction items. We thank you for her dedication to the mission.

Tom Porter and his lovely wife Eleanor Porter-Thank you Tom for putting on the most miles for Circle of Hope. Also for putting the petal to the metal and belonging to the Circle of Hope Grunt and Groan Team. Tom hauled our tent and brought the Anderson's to Dare Me for Charity in Blaine, MN. He has hauled clothes to and fro for two clothing sales, moved cases of water, tables, a golf cart, and other items for the 5K UV Splash Color Dash. He has put up so many posters it would make your head spin.
For the Christmas City of the North Parade Tom hauled wooden benches and road in the cab with George. The 2 Mr. Santa's had smiles on their faces.
