The Breathe for Bea Foundation has many programs in place, all of which are focused on helping individuals with Cystic Fibrosis, as well as families that have a loved one with CF to care for, fight this devastating disease. These include:
- Financial Assistance: we truly understand the hardships that come with treating Cystic Fibrosis. That’s one of the big reasons why we started this Foundation, to help patients and their families by providing needed assistance to those who are struggling with the overwhelming financial burden. Financial assistance can be used to cover prescription costs, hospital/doctor bills, un-reimbursed medical equipment, etc. If you, someone you love, or a friend is in need, please fill out our electronic application form , or download an application and either email the completed form – along with all supporting documents requested – to us at [email protected], or print it out and mail the completed application along with the additional documents to our physical address.
- Academic Scholarships: we provide financial awards to individuals with Cystic Fibrosis who are looking to achieve their dreams of a higher education. Learn more about the Breathe for Bea Scholarship Program.
- Hospital Care Packages: the Breathe for Bea Foundation provides care packages to CF patients who are admitted into local area hospitals, with the hopes of making their stay a little more comfortable. Learn more about our hospital care packages.
- Lung Transplant Aid: we provide assistance to those who qualify to help with the costs associated with lung transplants. Financial awards can be used to cover out-of-pocket expenses related to travel, hotel stays, meals, etc., that are not covered by your insurance or other means. Learn more about how you can apply for lung transplant financial assistance.
The Breathe for Bea Foundation is constantly reviewing its programs, and looking for additional ways we can help and support individuals and families in the fight against Cystic Fibrosis.
