At Team Tony, our mission is to provide 1-to-1 support for cancer fighters and caregivers. We are committed to our mandate that no one should face cancer alone. The weeks and months following a cancer diagnosis are overwhelming. Often, new medically related financial demands add to the stress being experienced by cancer fighters. We are grateful to be able to offer financial assistance for those who participate in our 1-to-1 support program through the Team Tony Foundation. This grant is allocated for expenses that have been incurred due to an individual’s cancer diagnosis, up to a maximum of $1500 per fighter. It encompasses any medical cost related to treatment or recovery.
The Team Tony Foundation will provide resources and monetary support to help alleviate the financial burden of a cancer diagnosis. These items include, but are not limited to:
- Transportation and travel expenses to/from treatment
- Out of pocket expenses associated with medications, testing, or direct patient care
The Medical Grant Program specifically excludes support that may be available through alternative sources. These items include but are not limited to:
- Permanent housing
- Medical insurance premiums
This financial assistance is available to any fighter who has been matched with one of Team Tony’s Teammates in our 1-to-1 support program. In order to receive funds, the fighter needs to have connected with their teammate, or with a Team Tony staff member. After having completed the application for funds, the form will be assessed and the fighter will be contacted within one week of receipt.
The application for financial assistance can be obtained by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line ‘Medical Grant Application Request’ or calling 941-227-4404.
