Being a cancer patient puts you in a club that nobody wants to be in. Unless you're in the club you have no idea what membership is really like. It sucks! As treatment begins the financial aspects can become a significant burden and add to the overall stress and worry of not only the patient but their family as well. The Lintner Foundation was formed to help with that part of the big picture. Our goal is to continue to grow and become an organization that people can look to for support during a horrible time for them and their family.
The Lintner Foundation became a way to give back and help these patients and families. The Foundation's mission is not to provide funds for research but to provide direct patient aid for non-insurance related costs. During the four years the Lintner Foundation has existed we have been able to provide over $150,000 in direct patient assistance !! Saint Francis Hospital Cancer Center Patient Assistance Fund has been the largest recipient receiving $100,000. Riley Hospital for Children Childhood Cancer Fund has received $25,000 and the Leukemia Lymphoma Society has received $30,000.
