Baptist Health Foundation Supporting Mississippi's Cancer Patients In Need

 Baptist Presenting Van to Hope House

Baptist Health Foundation, the philanthropic division of Baptist Health Systems, has donated a van to Hope House of Hospitality. The van will be used to transport patients to and from cancer treatment as well as for other transportation needs.

“The Baptist Health Foundation appreciates this opportunity to enhance our partnership with The Hope House of Hospitality,” said Baptist Chief Development Officer and Foundation President Whit Hughes. “Our team is always excited to support The Hope House, and we provide this van knowing it will help meet extremely important transportation needs of patients and their families."

Hope House is a Christian ministry that provides a “home away from home” for seriously ill patients. Most of the guests have cancer and are referred to the home by hospital social workers. Patients come from throughout the state to receive outpatient chemotherapy and radiation therapy. The guests typically stay six to eight weeks. Hope House provides lodging, food, laundry services and transportation at no cost to its guests.

“The generous donation of a van is answered prayer. We needed reliable, comfortable transportation for our guests to their treatments. We are thrilled by this gift. ‘Thank you’ just doesn't seem like enough to say,” added Hope House of Hospitality Board Member Paige Stowe.
