In the last fiscal year, Arkansas Hospice cared for 92 patients facing the end of their life after battling breast cancer. Three of these 92 patients had no means to pay for their care, so Arkansas Hospice covered their expenses at approximately $23,000 considering average length of stay and treatment costs for breast cancer patients. Across the organization, Arkansas Hospice with help from it’s generous donors and funders covered expenses totaling over $433,000 for Charitable Care patients, and over $1 million for the last two years. Komen Arkansas providing for the care and support of these Charitable Care breast cancer patients would provide the full array of services for these three patients and their families, which would benefit the patients and their extended families immeasurably as they face the end of life of their loved one. All of our program services and methods are in place and costs, effectiveness, and efficiencies are regularly evaluated.
