Get Help

Starting in 2022, we will provide direct financial assistance to young adults in the Charlotte Metropolitan area who are currently undergoing medical treatment and are having difficulty making day-to-day living expenses as a result of their treatment. Qualified candidates for grants need to make a clear and direct connection between current financial difficulties and the onset of medical treatment (eg. Lost wages, high medical bills, limited ability to work because of side effects).

We have entered into a referral agreement with Levine Cancer Institute to identify qualified candidates but we accept grant applications from any patient that can prove that they are currently undergoing treatment from an oncologist or other health care provider.

The procedure for providing grants will be determined as an ongoing process tailored to current circumstances and conditions. We expect that average grant size will be $1,500-$5,000 over the six months.

Funding is not provided specifically for medical bill payments, but we will pay for a wide variety of day-to-day living expenses that will help mitigate the financial burden of your treatment. These categories include:
