Since 2010 is has been our mission to provide assistance to families and friends that are dealing with cancer and heart disease. We started with our community but now we are casting a larger net across the state of New Jersey.
That’s right! Fashion For A Cure is looking to provide financial assistance for 6 individuals! We will award six $500 grants to qualifying families who need assistance paying for their ongoing medical needs, including expenses such as surgery, counseling, physical therapy and medication as it pertains to cancer and heart disease.
Applicants must be covered by a commercial insurance policy. Applicants covered by Medicaid do not qualify for any assistance and families must meet certain income criteria.
Last year, FFAC awarded 6 grants worth $5,000. Since 2010, it has awarded nearly $17,000 in grants to New Jersey families.
Applications are accepted year-round.
Our medical grants have already helped dozens of residents in need, and we are looking to help even of more residents in the future.
The grant money distributed by the Fashion For A Cure’s Foundation has been donated to the organization by individuals, corporations and the United Health Group, a health insurance company.
