Applicants must complete an application and submit:
1) A letter from the patient’s social worker/physician stating that the patient has cystic fibrosis and verifying that the patient and his or her family are in need of financial assistance.
2) A letter from patient or patient’s parents/guardians indicating how much money is needed and where the funds should be allocated. If possible, please specify reasons for the grant (i.e., rent increase, transportation issues, etc.). Include jobs held by primary income earners in the family and annual wages earned for the past three years. Indicate at what stage in the transplant process the patient is at present. Please note that the more detail this letter provides, the more attention the evaluation committee will give your application. Typical letters are one page in length.
3) Latest fiscal year W-2 tax forms for patient and patient’s family (if applicable).
4) A photo of the patient.
