Financial Assistance – Supporting Guidelines

In support of our mission, the Paternostro Family Foundation provides supplementary financial assistance to families with financial needs resulting from expenses associated with their cancer treatment.

This program covers specific non-medical costs related to a cancer diagnosis. Direct medical expenses will not be covered.  Grants are available for those families that meet the following criteria:

1.  The patient must be a undergoing cancer treatment as defined by doctors providing treatment to the patient. Special consideration will be given to mothers with young child/children (defined as child/children under the age of 12 at the time of diagnosis.

2.  The request for assistance must be submitted by the social worker at UPMC Susquehanna Cancer Center, or by related cancer center, on the behalf of the family.

Funding is limited and based on availability. All information is strictly confidential.

Once reviewed, the Paternostro Family Foundation will work directly with the UPMC Susquehanna Cancer Center, or related cancer center, to confirm or reject the request for funding.

Payment will be made by check to pay for the approved expense directly to the organization providing the service (utility company, grocery store, etc.).

From time to time, and under exceptional circumstances, the Paternostro Family Foundation may receive requests for financial support which fall outside of the boundaries of our mission.  In those instances, the Paternostro Family Foundation Board of Directors will consider one-time requests for financial assistance.  These one-time requests may only be granted with a unanimous vote of the Board.

Please access the financial assistance request form below, and work with your social worker to complete and return to us.
