What Patient Support Programs are Available During COVID-19?
As the novel coronavirus continues to spread and create unprecedented challenges for patients and families, here is a look at patient support programs available during this time.
The Cancer Support Community launched the Cancer Emergency Fund to provide assistance in the form of a $250 relief grant for people with cancer who are in active treatment, including palliative and hospice care. This assistance is for non-medical expenses during the coronavirus pandemic.
Eligible blood cancer patients will receive an individual one-time $250 stipend per patient to help with non-medical expenses, such as food, housing, utilities, transportation and other needs. Patients do not need to have a COVID-19 diagnosis and there are no income criteria to qualify.
