The Emily Whitehead Foundation is uniquely aware of the heightened concerns, struggle, and uncertainty that pediatric cancer patients and their families have to face, especially those undergoing CAR T-cell therapy treatment.
To provide much needed support, we are activating the Hope Grant program to financially assist eligible families.
- Patient must be enrolled in an active pediatric CAR T-cell therapy treatment program or clinical trial OR have a diagnosis of pediatric cancer and live in Centre County, PA.
- Patient diagnosis and treatment plan must be confirmed by a social worker, oncologist, child life specialist, or other care team member.
- Patient must be a citizen of the United States, or a permanent resident and reside in the U.S.
- Income level is not an eligibility consideration.
Exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis. If you are unsure whether you meet the eligibility requirements, please contact us.
How to Apply
Each Hope Grant will provide a $250 payment to eligible patients and families in the form of either a check, Amazon gift card, or VISA gift card to be used at their discretion. We do not require submission of receipts. Families may apply to the Hope Grant program, once every 6 months.
An online application is available here.
