MOLINE, ILLINOIS (April 1, 2024) — For sixteen years, Midwest Hope and Healing offered support and comfort to more than 3,800 breast cancer patients through its signature healing baskets. Generous donors made this possible. Each newly diagnosed patient was given a Healing Basket from Midwest Hope and Healing.

In 2019, Midwest Hope and Healing partnered with the Moline Regional Community Foundation to create the Midwest Hope and Healing Endowment Fund.  The fund provides grants to Quad City area nonprofits and faith-based groups that support cancer patients and their families.

The Grant application process is now open and will be open through Tuesday (4/30). For additional information on the grant requirements and application, please follow this link:
