The SAMFund is the only nonprofit organization in the country designed to help young adults (YAs) recover from the devastating financial impact of cancer treatment. We are transparent and effective with donors’ dollars and are proud to be able to show the direct impact of each donation. Specifically:
- We’ve awarded $1,350,000 in direct financial assistance to young adult cancer survivors across the country since 2005.
- We’ve enabled young adult survivors to pay their living expenses (rent, utilities, groceries, car insurance, etc) and medical bills (both current and residual, as well as prescription co-pays and health insurance premiums). We’ve supported their wellness goals, including gym/yoga memberships and mental health expenses. We’ve been honored to help with family building expenses, including adoption and infertility treatments. In short, we strive to help YAs survive and move forward with each and every grant.
- We provide online support through our blog as well as a free Webinar series entitled “Moving Forward With Your Financial Health,” launched in early 2011.
