SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY NOV 2, 2019

Since its inception in 2011, the Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) Foundation has provided over $5.5 million in grants to help cancer patients in need. The FCS Foundation has awarded $1.16 million in grants year-to-date in 2019, surpassing the prior year’s total. The FCS Foundation provides financial support to qualified adult cancer patients in the state of Florida to help them pay for essential non-medical expenses, such as rent or mortgage, car payments and utility bills. In response to a 21 percent increase in patient applications in 2019, the FCS Foundation Board of Directors recently approved increasing the annual maximum individual grant amount from $1,500 to $2,000 beginning January 1, 2020. All of the overhead expenses required to operate the Foundation are paid for by the physicians of Florida Cancer Specialists so that 100% of donations go directly towards paying essential non-medical living expenses.
