Kittie’s Warriors Foundation Grant Program

Each year, the Foundation intends to make financial grants available to cancer patients who demonstrate a financial need. Cancer patients are considered by the Foundation and grants are awarded based their eligibility and need. To be considered for grant, a licensed social worker representing the patient must complete and submit an application which is reviewed in detail by the Foundation’s Board of Directors.

KWF Grant RECIPIENT #1 | ANDREA | BREAST CANCER WARRIOR

November 13, 2018 was a very special day for Kittie’s Warriors. It marked a new milestone as we got to meet Andrea. Andrea is a wife, mother, breast cancer warrior and also the very first KW Program grant recipient.

Cancer is unexpected and brings with it many challenges. Not only physically and emotionally, but also financially. For Andrea, this grant came at the perfect time. Not only did it help with her families day-to-day bills, but she also found out that her car was in need of critical repairs so she could travel to her appointments and treatments.
