About the Fund

The SIH Foundation established the Cancer Care Patient Support Fund to assist patients of the SIH Cancer Institute. The fund is in a position to assist SIH Cancer Institute patients demonstrating a financial need through an application process. A review committee is in place and works diligently to review applications and assist those individuals meeting the fund guidelines. The Cancer Care Patient Support Fund is set up to assist with the following expenses while actively seeking treatment for cancer:

  • Fuel expenses
  • Co‐pay’s expenses
  • Cancer related medical bills
  • Prescription assistance
  • Nutritional needs
  • Transportation costs
  • Medical equipment related to cancer treatment
