Due to unforeseen circumstances and family obligations, the Foundation will be unable to review or process any applications for financial assistance until further notice, and will only be able to process requests for care packages and scholarships. We hope to resume our financial assistance program as soon as we possibly can, so please check back with us in the future. We apologize for any inconvience. Please contact us at [email protected] with any questions, or inquiries about other possible resources we may be able to direct you to. Thank you.
It is the mission of the Breathe for Bea Foundation to help as many individuals with Cystic Fibrosis, as well as families that have a loved one with CF to care for, as we can fight this devastating disease. One of the ways we aim to accomplish this is by providing financial aid to those who qualify in order to help lessen the burden of the substantial medical costs that come with treating CF. Financial aid can be used to cover prescription costs, hospital/doctor bills, un-reimbursed medical equipment, hotel expenses incurred while a child or spouse is in the hospital, etc. Please be aware that at this time we cannot provide financial assistance to cover things such as rent, mortgages, car payments or repairs, groceries, and utilities. If you are in need of assistance with these types of things as a direct result of a recent – or current – extended stay at a hospital (of at least two weeks), please contact us directly. Depending on the nature of and circumstances surrounding the request, and the amount of funds we have available, we may be able to provide assistance in these cases only, or suggest alternative resources.
Please note that the Breathe for Bea Foundation is only able to offer assistance to patients and families that are U.S. citizens. Also, please be aware that in most situations we do not provide payment directly to anyone whose application has been approved. Typically, we will pay any financial obligations directly to the source to which aid has been requested for, such as a doctor’s office, hospital, pharmacy, etc. Lastly, the Foundation will give up to $500 for each approved request however, this amount is set at the discretion of the Foundation and may be increased under certain circumstances. As our Foundation grows, it is our hope to increase the maximum amount of assistance we can provide.
