Story

The costs for a family dealing with a chronically-ill loved one go far beyond physician co-pays and prescription medications. These patients are often struggling to pay for travel expenses to frequent doctor visits, and unexpected, yet necessary, medical equipment not covered by their insurance. Patients should never have to forego an appointment because they cannot afford the costs associated with traveling to a physician's office or be embarrassed that they can't purchase needed supplies.

Thanks to the generosity of Marc Ford's family, who started this fund in his memory, there is now a resource to help patients with these expenses. Your donation to this fund will provide assistance to these patients and families as they shoulder the burden of these additional costs.

About the charity

Building on a 103-year tradition of providing award-winning care for patients from birth to the end of life, our passion is to raise funds and awareness for projects and services that encourage healthy behaviors and provide excellent health care for each of our patients and families.
