The Wellness Fund at Southampton Hospital's David E. Rogers, MD Center has nearly reached its fundraising goal of raising $21,525, which would allow them to provide support to 80 individuals through 2017. The Fund, which was created in 2009, has enabled more than 135 people to receive on-going quality care for HIV/AIDS since its start. The organization helps to ensure that patients managing HIV/AIDS are not denied care due to lack of financial resources and aren't deterred from seeking long term care because of unaffordable or unexpected out-of-pocket costs.

Funds from the campaign will assist with a variety of care services over the next two years. It will help around 60 individuals managing HIV/AIDS on eastern Long Island with services including Medical and Prescription Assistance, Hospital-based Integrative Medicine, Nutritional Support, and Transportation Assistance.

So far, The Wellness Fund has generated over $15,000 through a combination of private donations, personal appeals, and an online campaign through goodcircle.org. With slightly over $6,000 needed to reach their goal, the fundraising campaign will continue until Friday, February 6th.

To learn more about the Center, view the campaign video, or make a donation, visit goodcircle.org. Donations can also be made at www.southamptonhospital.org (the designation is David E. Rogers, MD Center for HIV/AIDS) or by check mailed to: Southampton Hospital Foundation, 240 Meeting House Lane, Southampton, NY 11968.
