Berlin, VT – The Branches of Hope cancer patient fund at the University of Vermont Health Network – Central Vermont Medical Center received a $15,000 donation on Wednesday, July 30, from the Do Good Fest and the National Life Group Foundation.

The money represents proceeds from this year’s Do Good Fest music festival, as well as a matching grant by the National Life Foundation. The Do Good Fest was presented by National Life Group and The Point Radio Network, and was co-sponsored by Seven Days, Harpoon Brewery, Montpelier Alive and the National Life Group Foundation. 

The Branches of Hope cancer patient fund provides financial relief to individuals and their families dealing with cancer by helping with both routine and unexpected expenses related to housing, transportation, food, medical services and much more to allow the patient and their family to focus on treatment. Sometimes the small grant enables the person to complete treatment. Sometimes it helps the person sleep at night. Always, it gives hope.
