Helping others with our Foundation is at the heart of everything we do.

The Patient Assistance Foundation is critical part of our practice’s mission to serve our community in every way we can.


The Patient Assistance Foundation of Cancer Specialists of North Florida was established in 2004 with the help of physicians, staff and the community in order to provide short-term financial assistance to patients undergoing treatments for cancer or blood-related diseases in Northeast Florida. Ninety-nine percent of all funds received are distributed to patients and their families to assist with daily living costs.

Our Mission


The Patient Assistance Foundation of Cancer Specialists of North Florida offers short-term financial assistance to patients currently undergoing treatments for cancer or blood-related disease (or within the last six months).  The following are examples of day-to-day living expenses we may assist with:

  • Rent or mortgage payments;
  • Utility payments (water, sewer, electric);
  • Telephone payments (landline or mobile);
  • Transportation costs (car payments, car insurance or taxi fare);
  • And some retail pharmacy costs.
