Prescription of Hope Annual Luncheon
The 4th Annual Prescription of Hope Luncheon will be held on September 20, 2017. The luncheon is an opportunity to share the mission and initiatives of the Mitchell Bays Turner Pediatric Fund, as well as support, educate and advocate for the needs of families that are facing challenging pediatric diagnosis. Mitchell’s Fund currently supports families receiving care at St. Jude Affiliate Clinic at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital.
Mitchell’s Fund supports the social needs — such as utility bills and mortgage payments — of families with children facing the crisis of life threatening pediatric illnesses. The heart of Mitchell’s Fund is pediatric cancer, but the Fund also supports families grappling with mental health illness, sickle-cell anemia, extreme prematurity, chronic diseases and more.
One hundred percent of all contributions to the Fund are used to pay for living expenses, counseling services and travel for families of very sick children. When a child is sick, life goes on in many ways. Mitchell’s Fund’s mission is to alleviate some of the financial stress parents face so they can focus 100 percent of their energy on caring for and being with their sick child.
