Hands of Hope

Our Hands of Hope program offers emotional support to patients undergoing cancer treatment and their families.

Born out of a desire to be a presence in the lives of patients and families who are undergoing treatment for a life-threatening illness, Fox Valley Hands of Hope helps patients by providing a non-intrusive, comforting presence that sends a message of care, compassion and hope.

Patients are provided with items and services designed to enhance emotional comfort and reduce stress. These include:

  • Various genres of music
  • Books
  • Blankets and pillows
  • Hand massage
  • Movies
  • Seasonal activities
  • A selection of tea, coffee, home-baked goods and other refreshments
  • Comfort care packages
