financial assistance programs

In the latest quarterly LRF newsletter, there's a helpful listing of various financial resources. The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) offers a Patient Aid Grant for up to $5oo.00 but the need far outstripes the availabity of their funds. This year several new non-profit organizations have been established to help people with their medical out of pocket expenses. I thought I'd share all the listed resources (some of which are well-known) with you.

This is really great and helpful. I've been working on a similar list for the YA meet up group. I'll add this info as well.
