Ribbons for a Cure Increases Financial Assistance Funds for Cancer Patients

Ribbons for a Cure Inc.

Ribbons for a Cure Inc., a local non-profit cancer organization, informs the public that funding for its financial assistance program has been increased to $500 per person for the year 2022.  This increase in award value has been made possible through the contributions of businesses and individual donors throughout the community.

The program provides a one-time financial assistance benefit for cancer-related prescription medication, diagnostic testing or CT scans to individuals who have been diagnosed with cancer.

The program is available to cancer patients and survivors who have resided in the U.S. Virgin Islands permanently for the past five years.  The benefits will be awarded based on the availability of funds. Upon approval of the application, beneficiaries may continuously submit receipts within a 12-month period, from the date of approval, for reimbursement of expenses.  After the financial award has been exhausted, beneficiaries may apply for additional funding in the next calendar year.

Applications are available online at www.ribbonsforacure.net. Submitted applications will be reviewed and processed within 2 to 4 weeks.
