FINANCIAL AID
SO YOU CAN FOCUS ON HEALTH

Pink Practicalities is Pink Lemonade Project’s financial aid and assistance program. The program is designed for those who are experiencing financial hardships while in treatment or recovery for breast cancer. We offer financial assistance for essential items that are not necessarily covered by health insurance and/or that may be needed for important quality of life issues. Focusing on those who live and/or receive care in Clark County, Washington, we will also consider requests from the Portland metro area. With the generosity of some local funders, we have new grant dollars to expand this program for those impacted by COVID-19. We require you to work with your Vancouver-Portland area healthcare provider to submit a request. See below for all the details, guidelines, and the application.

Items that are frequently approved include:

  • Grocery store gift cards

  • Lymphedema compression sleeves

  • Neuropathy treatment

  • Wigs

  • Co-insurance for prostheses and surgical bras

Other items to be considered:

  • Pink Lemonade Project is open to reviewing requests for other needs for those in active breast cancer treatment and recovery.

  • Please include specific details of your needs, the approximate cost, and your situation in the application form.

COVID-19 Program Expansion:

Specific to the COVID-19 pandemic, Pink Lemonade Project has received some recent additional financial support from some generous local foundations and donors to help expand Pink Practicalities support for those going through breast cancer right now. We are currently considering requests for assistance in covering health insurance premiums and co-pays, and home-technology (like Zoom, Uber Conference, or GoTo Meeting, etc), and/or other urgent needs.

Other Guidelines:

  • All requests will be reviewed.

  • Requests will focus on those who live and/or receive care in Clark County, Washington. We will consider requests from the Portland metro area.

  • The maximum request considered will be approximately $1,000.

  • Participation in this program does not affect eligibility for Pink Lemonade Project’s Holiday Glow.

  • In some cases payments will be made directly to vendors, and in some cases to the patients.

Process:

  • Requests must be submitted/validated by a Vancouver-Portland area healthcare professional and will be considered based on financial need of the patient.

  • Requests are reviewed by the Pink Lemonade Project Program Committee, typically monthly, although, we are prepared to review applications more regularly throughout 2021.

  • Communications to individuals receiving assistance will be limited, but will include a survey within 30 days of allocation.
