The Kiona Foundation as a whole offers many services tailored to assist the cancer survivor through treatment and beyond. Our financial and in-kind assistance programs are by far the most widely requested. In 2011, The Kiona Foundation added alternative health treatments for cancer survivors to our list of services. Our holistic health center provides low to no cost medicinal herbs and supplements to cancer survivors to help assist them with enhancing their quality of life by helping to elevate the symptoms related to a cancer diagnosis. We have been successful in helping cancer survivors take a proactive approach to their health through advocacy, support services and education but WE NEED YOUR HELP!
The number of cancer survivors requesting financial assistance to help with their alternative medical treatments has grown exponentially in the last 2 years. With the introduction of the possibility that medicinal herbs, including but not limited to medicinal cannabis, can be an integral part of a comprehensive, medically approved treatment protocol, we have seen the number of patients desperate for a solution rise daily. Unfortunately, insurance does not provide payments or even reimbursements to patients for the costs of these very beneficial therapies.
Through our financial hardship program, The Kiona Foundation has provided discounted or free alternative health services to over 200 cancer survivors since 2011. It is our mission and commitment to continue to provide these services, however, the costs associated with the treatment options are a heavy burden to bare. We are calling on YOU, yes, YOU to help the Kiona Foundation continue to provide these crucial services to the patients that really need them the most!
