The HSHS Good Shepherd Hospital Vicky Wagner Breast Cancer Assistance Fund recently received a little help in the form of a donation from the Shelbyville Lions Club. The Lions Club were able to raise $542 at their annual spaghetti dinner in February to donate to the fund.
Shelbyville Lions Club Board Member Jack Tynan was stated how appreciative he was the support received from the community, as over 150 people attended the fundraiser put on by the Lions Club.
The HSHS Good Shepherd Vicky Wagner Breast Cancer Assistance Fund was set up in 2011 to help Shelby County Women fighting breast cancer, who are seeking treatment with their out-of-pocket expenses. These expenses can include child care, travel, meals, wigs, mileage and parking.
Each applicant is considered on a case-by-case basis for assistance from the fund. Those seeking to apply for assistance can contact the HSHS Good Shpherd Hospital financial counselor’s office to schedule an appointment.
