Travel to Hope
Offering hope to cancer patients by helping them afford to travel for care
Over 250,000 Americans must travel each year to receive cancer care, and this need is growing rapidly. Travel to Hope offers hope to these cancer patients by helping them afford to travel for the life-sustaining care they need.
100% of the proceeds from your donation will go directly to help cancer patients with significant financial need afford the costs of medically necessary travel for themselves and one travel companion.
Travel to Hope is a registered 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Your donation is tax-deductible.

“Not knowing how I could pay for all this was killing my spirit, and I was starting to give up. Thanks to the help you are giving me, I feel motivated again to keep trying.”
- M.H., Cancer Patient from Texas
"You have allowed me to be able to make my treatments and doctor's appointments by doing this. I don't have to choose between food and making my appointments and that is such a blessing.”
- T.C., Cancer Patient from Kentucky
"I can never fully convey to you how much it means to us that you would care as much as you do and take such an interest in two people that you have never met. Your compassion really does help far more than you realize and I am so grateful for your organization."
- Daughter of D.C., Cancer Patient from Kentucky
"The vast majority of people I see are experiencing financial strain. This strain, combined with the rising cost of treatment, health insurance concerns, as well as gas prices, exacerbates the economic ability for many patients to get to cancer treatment. Travel to Hope has helped address this need... patients focus on getting better and surviving cancer, instead of worrying about how they’re going to get to the hospital."
- E.W., Oncology Social Worker
