The Agnesian HealthCare Foundation’s Carol Hyland Caring for You Fund was established in 2010 for families requiring assistance with basic life needs they are unable to afford during cancer treatment, or care for other long-term illnesses. The fund, supported by the Farrah Fawcett Foundation out of California, has already been used to help people make rent, cover utility bills, fill an LP tank, and provide gas and grocery cards to families affected by cancer or other health crisis.
