This is FREE!  This is a gift during your journey!  You just have to pick-up and return the chairs.

Jonee Crump, Foundation Manager at Memorial Health System and Ranae Veal, Hope Lives and a Breast Cancer Survivor, work together to bring this amazing gift to women who will live through a similar experience as Ranae:

“Hi everyone! I am Ranae Veal.  In March of 2022, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. During my journey, I have learned many valuable things. One thing that was most helpful and valuable to me, was a post surgical lift chair. These Lift Chairs are for women that have had the mastectomy surgical procedure. The idea is designed to give us a little comfort of being able to get up and down independently and lay comfortably to sleep. Post surgery, I had purchased my own chair and after utilizing it and realizing the benefits, I wanted to give women in Dickinson County this gift. With the backing of Hope Lives and our generous supporters, we have been able to purchase 3 new chairs that are available (free of charge) to post-op patients to utilize during their time of healing. You can check out a chair for 3 to 4 weeks before you go in for surgery so it is there and ready for you when you get home! I hope this serves its purpose and provides comfort to others, as it did for me, during a difficult battle!”

If you or someone you know would benefit from the use of a Hope Lives Chair, just send a direct message via our Facebook page and Ranae will get back with you regarding the check out process.

If you have any questions or would like additional information regarding the Hope Lives Chairs, please contact:
Ranae Veal 785-263-3995, or send a message through the Facebook page.

Please coordinate pick up and return dates with Jonee Crump, Memorial Health System Foundation Manager or at 785-263-6609.
