Patient Emergency Fund

In an effort to support lung cancer patients who have been financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, Lung Cancer Initiative established the Patient Emergency Fund. Through this fund, LCI helped lung cancer patients stay healthy and to meet their basic needs throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Through the Patient Emergency Fund, lung cancer patients applied for a stipend of $250 to help with healthy food costs, transportation, and other non-medical expenses. Patients completed a two-page application that included a signature from their healthcare provider. The healthcare provider signature ensured the lung cancer patient was actively receiving treatment.
