Families often face financial struggles when a child is diagnosed with cancer. The Family Emergency Fund helps families in need fill that gap.
- Support for one patient has an annual (12 month calendar year) cap of $500 and a lifetime cap of $750.
- Funds will be used to cover patient’s cancer related medical bills or other family costs related to treatment (i.e.: utilities, mortgage, rent, transitional housing, etc.).
- The Family Emergency Fund is a grant with limited funds. Once these funds are exhausted, it is expected that it will be renewed the next grant cycle.
Note: The 2016 Family Emergency Fund has been exhausted and is now closed. The 2017 fund will reopen during the next grant cycle in April 2017.
- Be currently receiving treatment for a cancer-related diagnosis or side effects from cancer treatment.
- Not be over 21 years old.
- Submit a completed application through a social worker or hospital representative.
- The hospital representative must exhaust other available funds for the family to receive financial assistance.
- The hospital representative must apply on behalf of the family and complete all sections of the form truthfully. Any false, incomplete, or misleading information will result in automatic request denial.
