The Weersing Family Grant Fund
Our mission is simple. Financially support cancer patients at a time when they need it most. This mission has been made possible by the generous gift of the Weersing Family.
Thank you !
The Hawthorne Cancer Foundation exists to lessen the emotional and financial burden one experiences as one navigates through the treatment of cancer.
THCF offers financial grants to qualified individuals who are currently undergoing cancer treatment. The applicant must reside or be receiving treatment within a thirty-mile radius of the Johnston-Willis Medical Center. The geographical range covers the Richmond Metropolitan and Tri-City communities.
Healthcare professionals and credentialled social workers stand as "Advocates" of the patient and are required to submit and manage the grant application process on behalf of the patient.
Grant recipients may utilize the funds for a variety of needs, including food, shelter, transportation, and related expenses. Payment of medical bills or prescription drugs is prohibited.
Grant awards are limited to one per applicant, per twelve-month cycle.
Advocates are encouraged to become familiar with the FAQ's section on this page so they are prepared to answer questions by the patient applicant.
