Patient Assistance Program
Our Patient Assistance Program provides support to Oregon cancer patients, at all stages, through educational or financial assistance for their care and treatment of cancer.
Frequently, the level of care received is directly related to the patient's income. When the choice is food; a roof over their head; electricity for their home; or treatment and medication; more often their choice is to forego the treatment or medication. When care is received, families often assume a large amount of debt which becomes a heavy and worrisome burden during the care and recovery process. Our goal is to make sure there are no boundaries to the patient’s treatment and recovery from cancer.
Applications for assistance may be submitted for help with the following:
- Medical Bills
- Treatment Related Travel Expenses
Consideration may also be given on a case-by-case basis for financial assistance with:
- Physician Prescribed Medical Equipment & Supplies
- Physician Prescribed or Guided Alternative Care Treatments
In partnering with local treatment facilities and other non-profit organizations, we work to identify those with the greatest need. Applicant requests are awarded based on eligibility and available funding. Priority is given to those at the highest risk for not receiving medical care based on their financial circumstance. Please be sure to visit our Resources page for additional information and available support for cancer patients and their families.
Applications for cancer patients younger than 18, must be filled out and submitted by the custodial parent(s) or legal guardian.
To apply for assistance, please submit a completed assistance application via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to:The Treva Hoffman Foundation
