Hope On Wheels At Saint Luke’s
During an emotional and visual ceremony, St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute received a $50,000 Hyundai Impact Grant from Hyundai Hope On Wheels® (HHOW) and Boise-area Hyundai dealers. MSTI is one of only 18 institutions in the country honored with this grant, and chosen due to its proven track record of caring for adolescents with pediatric cancer.
What's unique about this grant is how the funds will be used. MSTI Pediatrics will hire a navigator specifically for adolescent and young adult patients. They aren't little kids who require total care and direction, yet are not independent adults. This navigator will serve as their trusted adviser who can provide clinical support, education, and advocacy for teens and preteens who haven't had this type of care before, and can struggle with isolation.
