Does anyone know of grants or a funding program that patients are able to apply for to get into facility with a clinical trial?

Hi Helen, 
lazarex.org/ is a good resource. Try some of the foundations by disease site. If you attended the Annual last year, the presentation about diversity in Clinical Trials had a section about resources. You could re-visit the slide deck. Are you referring the patients to another site or is this in your institution? 

Thanks.

Thank you for that information! I revisited the slides from last year and checking them to see if my patients qualify.

I am having to refer to another site.

Another resource in addition to Lazarex I've found is the More Moments More Memories Foundation. A bit about their program:

"Despite the life-saving benefits of clinical trials, the high costs associated with travel, lodging, and meals deter many patients from participating. Those who are younger, lower income, and/or of color are the least likely to enroll in a clinical trial.

More Moments More Memories started with the goal of supporting one patient per month. As awareness grew, it was clear that the need was great. Their partnership with Family Reach was forged in 2022 and grew from there.

In its first year of inception, the Clinical Trial Access Program supported 292 patients. We anticipate reaching over 1,000 in 2024"

You can find more about their program and how to apply at FamilyReach.org

Clinical Trials: Essential to Cancer Progress

Danielle Carnival believes that providing patients with the most up-to-date tools and resources about clinical trials is an essential part of doubling the rate of progress in the fight against cancer, and the Biden Cancer Initiative is focused on reaching a wide range of patients with this information.
