Don a 62-year-old homeless veteran living with chronic dental pain.
Don served our country proudly for 22 years. He had some bad breaks in life, found himself homeless, and in desperate need of dental care; he does not qualify for dental care through the V.A. because his condition is not 100 percent related to his service. He was forced to live with the pain.
The pain is so great that you look for pain medication off the street and found himself addicted.

One Mission Patient Story

Every year, thousands of families experience financial toxicity and immense emotional distress due to the roller coaster of childhood cancer. According to a study by the American Childhood Cancer Organization, more than 75% of pediatric families have one parent who stops working completely or reduces their work hours by at least 50%. This cuts most families’ household income in half, while at the same time their expenses increase at a rate they can’t keep up with.

Mr. B's Journey

At CFH, the foundation of all the work we do is a basic principle: We believe that homelessness is a condition, not a characteristic of a person. This distinction is important since homelessness is a condition, we can treat it. Your support will provide critical health care treatment that ends episodes of homelessness.

Meet Kyrn - Cancer Survivor!

In June 2017, 11-year-old Kyrn was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in her right leg and immediately had to undergo intense inpatient chemotherapy at St. Luke’s Children’s. Following months of chemotherapy and time spent in her “second home,” Kyrn underwent surgery for a full distal femur replacement at Primary Children’s in Utah. After the procedure, Kyrn returned to Idaho where she continued to receive chemotherapy and learned how to walk again. Six months later, she was able to ring the bell at St. Luke’s Cancer Institute, celebrating the start of a new chapter for her and her family.
