Through our various initiatives – and especially during the current pandemic – we have seen the financial burden that can accompany being diagnosed with ovarian cancer. To help those in need, SLOCA has developed the Together in Teal Ovarian Cancer Patient Need Fund. The goal of the Together in Teal Fund is to provide financial assistance so that you can focus on the most important thing – healing.
The Together in Teal Fund can provide financial assistance to cover the following types of expenses: health insurance premiums, basic living expenses including rent/mortgage, renters or homeowners insurance, utilities, vehicle payments and insurance, telephone and wigs. Total funds available annually will be determined by SLOCA and financial assistance may be limited by fund availability.
To be eligible you must be currently undergoing or have recently completed ovarian cancer treatment in the St. Louis Metro Area within the past six months and demonstrate financial needs defined by the program guidelines. SLOCA defines “treatment” as chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, and/ or clinical trials. If you are interested in learning more about the Together in Teal Patient Need Fund or applying call us at 314-966-7562. The application may be submitted securely online through the button below or you may download a version for in-person or mail-in submission.
Funding and support for the Together in Teal program is generously provided through Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance.
