Patient Aid Program
Our Patient Aid Program is a one-time bill pay grant available to families of children with cancer who receive treatment at a Southern California Hospital, and the family is experiencing difficulty paying bills (medical or household), due to loss of income or other situations directly resulting from their child's cancer which have adversely affected their financial well being and ability to pay their bills. This could include but not limited to: parent/s taking time off work to care for their sick child, increased expenses resulting from their child's treatment, increased travel or lodging needs related to their child's treatment or end of life expenses and family not financially prepared. Application must be submitted by a medical social worker on the family's behalf. Megan's Wings will review the request & reply within 48 hrs. If the need is immediate, please contact us at (909) 532-8135 asap. Funds are limited and based on monthly availability.
