David Barns was known by many for the way he fought cancer with his faith and hope for life. During his battle with cancer, David witnessed firsthand the high cost of health care. David’s Faith & Hope for Life Foundation is dedicated to supporting and inspiring individuals, both financially and emotionally, who are enduring hardships caused by adverse medical conditions. The Foundation strives to alleviate the burden of financial stress so that the individual may focus on their well-being.
David’s Faith & Hope for Life Foundation provides a support system for recipients who are experiencing financial difficulty caused by a medical condition resulting in the individual becoming unable to work or with a compromised income. Financial support consists of assisting with mortgage payments, utilities, car payments, medical bills, student loans, etc. Through continual contact with the recipient the Foundation is also able to provide an additional emotional support system.
During the fiscal year of 2014 the Foundation has assisted two individuals. This support has continued into 2015 with the addition of 1 new recipient for the year. The Foundation supports recipients financially until they are as fiscally stable as they were before experiencing their medical condition. Financial support is determined on a case to case basis of the individual’s needs. The Foundation will assist as many recipients as financially possible. Since the Foundations inception four individuals have been assisted. As of today three recipients are still receiving continued support.
David’s Faith & Hope for Life Foundation runs solely off of the participation of board members and volunteers.
