Nov. 12, 2018 - Throughout months of research, I’ve accumulated a list of personal grants for cancer patients. We welcome help/time filling out some forms and please comment with any relevant additions you may have to add.
Small things eat up so much time, and we welcome a friend willing to meet in-person for a couple hours to help fill out forms and compile other needed paperwork.
INTENDING TO APPLY
Now is the time for us to begin completing applications, and we have printed applications ready to be completed for the following:
Cancer Care Financial Assistance Program - funds for transportation, childcare, and in-home care.
Cancer Warrior - funding specifically for cancer treatment (must be substantiated with billing documents)
Sy’s Fund - meaningful gifts to help young people with cancer pursue their passions and hobbies, and also provide funding for complementary treatments such as massage therapy and acupuncture. (Technically no longer accepting online applications for 2018, but we’re figuring to try mailing it in anyway.)
The Tiffany Foundation - empowers people living with cancer by making direct financial grants to help pay rents, medical expenses, transportation cost, child care, and other related expenses.
We welcome anyone to research and suggest any additional financial assistance opportunities in the comments!
Below is a separate list of grants for which Misi is not eligible, kept here to avoid duplicates in future research and to serve as a resource for others.
Jacqueline Shearer Memorial Fund - provides limited financial assistance for children and young adult patients (up to 40 years of age) with significant financial needs during their cancer treatment. There are specific eligibility requirements for assistance: must be in treatment at specific hospitals in Baltimore/DC area.
The Samfund: Support for Young Adult Cancer Survivors – grants for survivors who have completed treatment and are cancer-free (for a year).
