Giving Tuesday

Donate To This Campaign

BE THE REASON

Did you know thousands of patients in our community struggle to afford the financial burden that comes along with a medical diagnosis? During a time of stress and uncertainty, medical expenses should be the last thing on a patient's mind. This Giving Tuesday, you can BE THE REASON patients at London Health Sciences Centre receive the financial support they need, so they can focus on recovery and healing.


DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT

Thanks to the Hardie Family Foundation, all donations to London Health Sciences Centre's (LHSC) Patient Assistance Funds on Giving Tuesday will be matched up to $25,000! That means double the impact for patients who need extra financial support.

 

HELP FUND ESSENTIAL ITEMS LIKE:

Transportation  DONATE $35

For some patients, a trip to the hospital can be a challenge, especially if they don't have access to a car. Expenses like cab and bus rides are extra costs they just can't afford. For $35, you can help patients travel to and from their treatment appointments at the hospital.

Meal Vouchers  DONATE $50

Daily expenses, like healthy meals, can quickly add up if you're supporting a loved one who is going through treatment. For $50, you can help provide a family with a healthy, balanced meal while their loved one receives the care they need.

Child Care  DONATE $75

Imagine being a parent and a patient. Many patients are dealing with the added burden of health care costs on top of child care costs. For $75, you can help a parent arrange child care during their treatments, so they can focus on healing while their child is being cared for.

Accommodations  DONATE $100

To access the best care possible, some patients need to travel far from home, which can mean their families may not be able to stay close to them during a long stay at the hospital. For $100, you can help a patient, or their loved ones, stay close by while they receive the treatment they need.

Mastectomy Bras & Prosthesis  DONATE $200

Patients that have undergone mastectomies can sometimes wait months before they receive reconstructive surgery. Some choose to forgo this surgery altogether. For $200, you can change a patient's life by providing a mastectomy bra or prosthesis while they're healing or await reconstructive surgery.

Wigs & Head Coverings  DONATE $500

​A cancer diagnosis and the challenges that come with it can be devastating. Adjusting to changes, like hair loss, can take a toll and add stress to an already challenging time. For $500, you can help patients with cancer find a wig or head covering while they undergo chemotherapy.
