Meet the Faces of CF
MAKING A DIFFERENCE THIS YEAR
2018 was a very busy and successful year for the Hearts for Hope Foundation. Thanks to your generous donations we have been able to change the lives of many CF patients and their families. Below are a few examples of impacts we have made together:
Distributed $101,000 to individual families stricken with CF to pay for such things as medications, medical co-payments, and medical equipment.
$2,500 in gift cards to families with CF children admitted to Children's Hospital over the holiday season to help make the most of their holidays
$5,000 given to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation as a contribution to research to find a cure for the devastating disease
$20,000 to the Children's Hospital Walsh Fund for ongoing disbursements to CF patients at Children's to cover parking expenses, food vouchers, etc.
Additionally, in conjunction with the Fallon P. Finegan Memorial Scholarship, Hearts for Hope Foundation awarded $4,000 in scholarships to four Mansfield High School graduating seniors and $4,500 in scholarships to nine graduating seniors through Children's Hospital CF Clinic.

Every dollar counts. Your contributions financially support families struggling with Cystic Fibrosis
"As insurance premiums rise and the scope of coverage dwindles, we all pay more out-of-pocket expenses for health care. For someone with a chronic illness such as CF, it means ever increasing amount spent on out-of-pocket medical and pharmacy expenses. Hearts for Hope has covered continuous glucometers, the Afflo vest, helped offset the cost of fertility treatments, and reimbursed the expensive monthly pharmacy co-pays. I had one mother tell me I was a Godsend for telling her about Hearts for Hope. That's a winning situation for everyone."
Paula Magnuson MS RN, Children's Hospital
"Hearts for Hope has come to our aid at a very intense time in our lives. The financial support provided by this amazing organization has taken so much stress off our shoulders. It has allowed us to focus on my sister, Rima's, double lung transplant. By having financial support, we have been able to fully focus on her health and healing. We will be forever grateful for the help and assistance. We are so happy and lucky to have Hearts for Hope in our lives"
"Words can't express how thankful I am each and every day for this foundation. The love, financial and emotional support they continue to give me and my children leave me breathless. It has been life changing to have these angels by my side"
