    Hope Fund

    It is difficult enough to cope with a diagnosis of cancer without the added burden of financial stress that can occur as a result.

    The Hope Fund offers emergency financial assistance to those with breast cancer to help with expenses during care and treatment.

    The Hope Fund is a program of the New Ulm Medical Center Foundation and funded through the generous support of the Minnesota Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.
