Helping Hand Grant Information & Qualifications
Dear Grant Applicant:
On behalf of The John Estrella Foundation for Cancer Research, inc, and Grant Review Committee, we thank you for your interest in our Helping Hands Grant. In addition to needing help with managing the cost of medicines and treatment, people with cancer often need assistance with expenses like transportation, homecare and childcare, among others. The purpose of our grant is to provide support to individuals and/or their families experiencing financial burdens associated with a diagnosis of and/or treatment for kidney cancer.
Applicants should submit their application via mail no later than May 15, 2020 to:
John Estrella Foundation Helping Hand Grant
3 Seward Avenue
Beverly, MA 01915
Due to the expected high demand for our grants, incomplete applications will not be reviewed by the Grant Review Committee for consideration. Applications received with a postmark after May 15, 2020 will not be considered. The John Estrella Foundation for Cancer Research, inc. is not responsible for Helping Hand Grant applications that fail to reach us (e.g. due to mail delivery failure).
All applicants will be notified via email by July 15, 2020 of the Review Committee decisions.
