Emergency Financial Relief
A cancer diagnosis changes every aspect of a family’s life. Next to the well-being of a child, a parent’s most pressing concern is often financial.
When possible, Special Love helps campers with non-medical financial needs through The Kathy Russell Emergency Relief Fund, named in recognition of Kathy’s dedicated service as a Camp Fantastic volunteer and member of the Special Love Board of Directors.
Types of Covered Expenses:
- Utilities (electric, gas, phone) which are in
danger of being shut off for non-payment
- Auto repairs that are necessary to allow a
parent or caregiver to provide transportation to and from medical
- Rent or mortgage payments
- Other emergency situations involving
basic living expenses
- Funeral expenses
You must request funds through the patient’s social worker, doctor, or other hospital representative, not directly to Special Love. All payments are made directly to the service provider and not the customer.
If you’re a past or current camp family in need of financial assistance, please let us know. Contact Judy Martin or call (888) 930-2707.
