Rally Foundation Family Emergency Fund Guidelines

Rally Foundation for Childhood Cancer Research (Rally) has a fund to help families in need of assistance who have children being treated for cancer. This fund is available to families who fit Rally’s requirements until the monies in the fund run out.

Please follow these guidelines when applying:

The Hospital Representative must:

1. Apply on the behalf of the family.  
2. Complete all sections of the form truthfully. Any false, incomplete, or misleading information will result in automatic request denial.
