Foundation Support

Foundation support comes in many forms, from scholarships to patient care and educational programs. Scholarships provide financial assistance to students pursuing higher education and certifications, allowing them to focus on their studies without the burden of excessive student loans. Cancer care programs, on the other hand, offer a range of support services to individuals affected by cancer, including survivorship gym memberships, and financial aid for medical expenses not covered by insurance. These diverse forms of foundation support play a crucial role in improving the lives of individuals and communities by addressing various needs and challenges they may face.

We are aware that a cancer diagnosis or treatment can force people to make challenging decisions, especially ones that are financially related. The Cancer Care Fund’s objective is to assist Oneida Health patients by providing financial assistance for some unforeseen or urgent costs or related expenses that are not covered by insurance. Simple tasks, like purchasing food or gas for your car, might become challenging due to the cost of treatment and maintaining good health. Because of the kindness of Cancer Care Fund donors and grantors, we at the Oneida Health Foundation are able to offer a way to ease matters just a little bit during a very difficult time. With one fewer worry or difficult decision to make, we want you and your loved ones to concentrate on healing.

To apply for the Cancer Care Fund – please speak to your Oneida Health provider for more information.
