Helping Families in Medical Crisis

Lend A Hand Up helps families facing a medical crisis and with four upcoming benefits, your support can provide healing and hope.

When families face difficult health challenges, Lend A Hand Up, a DMF initiative, is a program that provides FREE resources so families can focus on healing and less on the financial strain.
