We believe that health is a fundamental human right so we seek to create
and expand access to comprehensive treatment and care for our community.
The BCH Foundation supports BCH in investing in the unpredictable and varying
needs, including funding for valuable preventative and overall treatment
services that are not directly covered by insurance.

Examples of programs that the BCH Foundation supports within Health Equity include:
Breast Cancer Treatment Fund
The Breast Cancer Treatment Fund assists breast cancer patients undergoing
treatment. Patients like Mercedes Alvarez: “They told us that the
financial side of things should be the least of our considerations. We
needed to worry about treating the cancer and not worry about what was
going to happen to us financially because of the cancer,” says Greg
Bowles, Mercedes’ husband.

Integrative Care Fund
The Integrative Care Fund covers the cost of alternative therapies for
cancer patients who are uninsured or underinsured, ensuring they have
access to massage therapy, reiki, meditation, acupuncture and more.

KidLinks Pediatric Rehabilitation Fund
Summer camps have been offered through Pediatric Rehab at BCH since 1991.
Camps allow children with special needs to participate in fun and motivational
activities that facilitate their physical, social, sensory and language
needs. Over the years, hundreds of children have experienced the joy and
sense of accomplishment of going to camp. Your support of the KidLinks
Pediatric Rehabilitation Fund also ensures scholarships for families based
on financial need. Scholarship funds have ensured that all children have
access to the necessary rehabilitation services.
