The reality of world-class rehabilitation is possible because of the generosity of friends like you. Annual support from our committed friends is essential to provide for the best possible outcomes for our patients. The Annual HOPE Appeal helps us to sustain the mission of the hospital by bridging the gap between what insurance reimbursement provides and the real cost of life-changing rehabilitation.
FIRST HOPE EQUIPMENT FUND
Sometimes a simple piece of equipment can mean a world of difference to a person recovering from a serious accident or injury. Friends like you create quality experiences for our patients needing mobility and communication equipment not covered by insurance.
The donor-supported First Hope Equipment Fund helps relieve barriers for children and adults with spinal cord injuries, brain trauma, stroke and other neurological conditions. Last year, donors like you helped us purchase basic communication technologies for children who can't speak and specialized shower chairs for adults with spinal cord injuries who cannot access their traditional home showers.
ST. BENEDICT FUND
Many people are just one accident or illness away from financial crisis. The St. Benedict Fund was established as an emergency fund to assist Madonna patients who need help to emerge from a crisis. Friends like you made a difference last year by helping 365 people. Your gifts provide immediate relief, assisting with the purchase of medical equipment not covered by insurance, transportation, utilities, rent, gas and very basic needs such as shoes so a patient can participate in therapy.
ADAPTIVE SPORTS & RECREATION FUND
A balanced life includes opportunities for sports and recreation. Thanks to friends like you, Madonna offers competitive teams in wheelchair tennis, basketball and power soccer. Madonna also hosts a variety of recreational activities that level the playing field for children and adults with disabilities. Your support of these opportunities allows kids and adults a chance to rebuild their lives, rejoin their communities, all while boosting their confidence and decreasing isolation.
