As part of our dedication to supporting the entire lung cancer community across NC and partnering with others to remove barriers to care, we are pleased to share that with the help of our generous community partners, Lung Cancer Initiative is opening another round of funding through the Lung Cancer Patient Emergency Fund.
This fund is designed to provide 40 lung cancer patients and their families who have been financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic (see our COVID-19 resource page here) with a $250 stipend. Applications will be accepted through June 22. To apply, download the application here and have your care provider sign your application before sending it to CChristensen@LungCancerInitiativeNC.org
From our founding, one of our core values has been "Building Community," and we remain committed to helping our community grow stronger. We are grateful to our community partners for making this emergency fund possible and hopeful that in some small way, this fund will help lung cancer patients meet their basic needs and stay healthy during this time.
