In honor of the organization’s namesake, the Board of Trustees of Avery’s Hope has created a financial assistance fund for individual Microvillus Inclusion Disease pediatric patient families as well as for other pediatric gastrointestinal and intestinal failure patient families. Funds will be directly awarded to qualifying pediatric patient families to supplement the expenses associated with medical care that the families don’t have the resources to cover. Funds may also be awarded for costs directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic such as rent, mortgage, medical travel and lodging and other living expenses.
DISCLAIMER: All information will be used solely for statistical purposes only. No personal information will be shared or viewed by the award committee. This grant is open to all rare pediatric GI disease patient families without discrimination.
