At times, patients are in treatment for hours; a little food goes a long way to making them feel better. A full lunch to our patients and caregivers beyond the nutrition items provided every day is a big comfort.
Patients face a wide variety of needs during treatment and a small gift card can really help with food or gas. Some patients travel hours to get to their treatment and this helps alleviate one less worry.
The cost of cancer treatments adds up, even the co-pays. Many patients are seen multiple times a month or even a week. Assistance to offset the cost of co-pays is greatly needed by many patients. Example: $25 Copay – 4x/Month = $100
Patients often spend a great amount of time at the Cancer Center during their infusion treatments. iPads are loaned to patients so they have access to movies, music, coloring pages, crossword puzzles and other apps to help keep them entertained during their chemotherapy treatments.
