Financial Assistance

At Altru, we believe in the importance of focusing on health, not money. This is why we offer financial assistance in the form of our Filling the Gap program and the Farrah Fawcett Fund for Patient Assistance.

Filling the Gap is a grant program made available by charitable donations, designed to lessen the financial burden of patients with cancer and their families. The program is supported and maintained by generous donors, with 100% of all donations directly benefiting eligible patients.

The Farrah Fawcett Fund for Patient Assistance is provided through the generosity of The Farrah Fawcett Foundation. The Farrah Fawcett Foundation is committed to honoring Farrah’s own fight with cancer by passionately giving to patient assistance funds for those facing mounting expenses during cancer treatments. To learn more about the Farrah Fawcett Foundation, please go to www.thefarrahfawcettfoundation.org.

Eligible patients are those that fit the financial criteria set by the grant, and are accepted upon review of a completed form of financial eligibility.

The Filling the Gap program and the Farrah Fawcett Fund for Patient Assistance:

  • Provide nutritional assistance
  • Provide lodging assistance
  • Provide transportation assistance (in the form of gas gift cards)
  • Allows patients to receive benefits for as long as they remain a patient of Altru Cancer Center and maintain eligibility  

Both of these funds provide support in the areas not commonly covered by insurance, making a great difference for those in need. If you are interested in making a difference, donate online to make a safe and secure donation. You can also mail your donation to:
