As an oncology social worker in an extremely poverty stricken, rural community, I dedicate a large portion of my time to finding financial assistance for our patients. Unfortunately, I have never been able to find assistance to help with radiation treatments – one of the more expensive portions of treatment for a lot of our individuals. I tasked a recent intern with finding more support, and she came across Rays of Relief. She was able to reach out to Geoff, and he has been absolutely amazing at getting assistance for our patients and helping us through the entire process. We have 2 currently enrolled, and are hopeful to utilize the service more in the future.
THANK YOU – from a small town community that most don’t know exist, but those that live here take great pride in.
Thank you for providing help to our patients. It is one of the few financial assistance programs out there helping with the out of pocket cost of radiation.It is much appreciated!
Rays of Relief is a charity organization specifically for patients who are undergoing Radiation therapy. They provide financial relief for patients in need. ROR has been responsible for helping 5 of our patients to the tune of 5,000.00 dollars since my introduction with Geoff in late 2018. They are a great resource to have in the radiation oncology space.
We received the check 1/15/19! Thanks for all your help!! 01/2019
Many times I work with patients who struggle financially during or after radiation. While no aspect of cancer care is easy I can often help patients find ways grants or other resources for medications, transportation, or other things related to treatment BUT there simply aren’t resources out there to help offset the costs of radiation. When we located Rays of Relief and they were able to assist our patient with her radiation bill it was a huge weight off of her shoulders and allowed us to feel helpful and know we had advocated for our patient’s needs.
Dear Rays of Relief,
On behalf of my patient, Bon Secours Health Systems, and myself I want to give you guys a big thank you for all of your help! My patient had been put in a peculiar position where we were unable to find any help for her radiation treatment. She accumulated over $5000 worth of bills for treatment and you guys were able to step in and help her! She was ecstatic to hear that ROR was able to assist her and I was happy to successfully help a patient because of ROR.
You guys have identified an area of great need and have jumped in to help these patients. I can’t thank you enough for putting that smile on my patient’s face!
Keep up the great work!
I want to thank Rays of Relief for the financial assistance extended to our patient at Aurora Center. We submitted our payment request and a check followed within two weeks! You are truly serving a need for cancer patients by helping with the expense of their radiation therapy treatments!
We'd like to extend our gratitude to Rays of Relief for helping our patients undergoing radiation therapy. The application process was seamless and they walked the patient completely through the application process when questions arose.
When we found out about Rays of Relief we were ecstatic! We had just received a call from another provider about a pediatric patient who needed help. She was diagnosed with a brain tumor and the mother had numerous bills for anesthesia, surgery and radiation therapy. Rays of Relief was able to assist with their patient assistance fund. As a new non profit we were unsure how to proceed and request payment. However the process was quick and easy; after submitting their reimbursement request form, payment arrived within two weeks. Financial burdens are one of the biggest factors for patients either not starting or completing treatment. We were glad to find this amazing foundation and are proud to see the work they are doing!
