My web site is devoted to medical and treatment information about this rare cancer. My blog is devoted to sharing what has been the more difficult part of the journey for me, the emotional and spiritual road I've traveled as a rare cancer survivor.

More Help

I was recently made aware of a source of more grants for cancer survivors. I was sent this email text:

"I saw your blog post on grant money available for appendix cancer survivors and wanted to let you know that The SAMFund is currently accepting grant applications for young adult cancer survivors. The SAMFund (http://www.thesamfund.org) provides sizeable “living grants” ($2K on average) to young adult cancer survivors (ages 17-35) to help pay for various transitional costs including medical and living expenses, certain types of tuition, family-building expenses, health and wellness, and more."

This link offers more information about the grants: Grants

Sorry for the late notice, but please check out the site soon, the deadline for Part 1 of the application is July 12th.

If I learn of any other grants, I will be sure to post them here!

I will be gone for a little over a week...will be driving about 1200 miles round trip to go on a wilderness backpacking trip with a good friend! Will touch base when I get back!
