What we help with & what we do not help with

  • devices not covered by insurance.

  • transportation cost to receive care (one time only - not ongoing care).

  • hotel costs while receiving care.

  • * other items will be considered.

  • ALthough the foundation would love to help with everything: we have found that requests such as renovations, rent/mortgage payments, payment for relatives to care for loved ones and some other requests are outside the scope of our abilities.
