The Beyond the Rainbow Fund at Exeter Hospital

The Beyond the Rainbow Fund provides local oncology patients in need with financial assistance and support while undergoing cancer treatment.  Since its inception, this fund has provided patients with immediate prescription assistance; subsidized rent, utility and fuel bills; purchased groceries; and assisted with additional needs that may have become unmanageable for individuals or their families during treatment.  This fund also provides patients with wellness/fitness programs and integrative therapies, such as massage, that further assists them in improving their quality of life as they focus on healing and recovery.  The impact felt by the recipients of this fund is immeasurable.

The Beyond the Rainbow Fund was founded in 2002 by Anne-Marie Viviano, a former Hampton, NH resident and Exeter Hospital patient, to help others in their fight against cancer.  Anne-Marie extended herself to the local community in many ways as she was committed to making a difference in the lives of others.  In May of 2009, Anne-Marie passed away after a 14 year courageous battle with breast cancer.  Her remarkable journey, courage and resilience of spirit continues to inspire and provide hope to others through The Beyond the Rainbow Fund.

As one recipient of The Beyond the Rainbow Fund explained,

"It is traumatic receiving a cancer diagnosis.  It is a challenge receiving treatment and trying to survive cancer.  With your caring support , we are honored to know that we are not in this alone."

Please consider making an additional donation or fundraising in support of our neighbors in need who are undergoing cancer treatment.  It can make a world of difference as they face what could be the fight of their life.
