Eligibility for a TRF grant is based largely on financial need. Our grants assist families who are faced with pediatric cancer (18 or younger) and are struggling to make ends meet. The Board of Directors has determined that the core purpose of the Foundation is to provide comprehensive support to each family we serve, as opposed to smaller grant amounts to a larger number of families.
Applications are provided by invitation-only through the social workers of our partnering hospitals. Our goal is to serve the entire family by eliminating the financial burdens of a tragic illness so that families can focus on the care of their child and each other. TRF granting policy does not allow for payment of medical and/or hospital bills.
