Urgent Need Program Covered Expenses

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) is committed to helping patients access their treatment in a timely manner so, in partnership with Moppie’s Love, the Urgent Need Program was created.

  • (Open) $500 The Urgent Need, Pediatric and Young Adult Fund serves pediatric and young adult blood cancer patients (birth to 39 years of age) who are in acute financial need.
  • (Open) $500 The Urgent Need, Adult Fund, in partnership with Charlie’s Fund, serves adult blood cancer patients (40+ years of age) who are in acute financial need.

The Urgent Need Program funds provide eligible patients with assistance for non-medical expenses including rent, mortgage, lodging, utilities, childcare, elder care, food, transportation, car repair, car insurance, phone service, and acute dental work related to treatment. Eligible patients will receive a grant of $500, once within a 12 month period. At the end of the 12 month period, patients can reapply.

Please note that applications are only accepted by members of the patient’s healthcare team. LLS offers healthcare team members two easy ways to apply on behalf of a patient:

  • By Phone: (877) 557-2672
