Everyone Needs A Helping Hand Sometimes.
What would you do if you had NOTHING in your house that your child could eat without being horribly sick? What if you ONLY had a very few foods they could eat, and those foods couldn’t come close to providing them with the nutrition they need to grow, develop and be healthy? And, WHAT IF you had a prescription from a doctor that would provide that nutrition, keep your child fed and happy, but you couldn’t afford it?
The economic, emotional and physical toll on American families with children in need of medical nutrition is substantial and often devastating. Unfortunately, all too often insurance does not cover the high cost of medical nutrition formula. Too many families dealing with these illnesses, trying to get appropriate specialized medical care and cover the substantial expense of the medical nutrition that their loved ones need to survive and thrive, have few options to pursue in receiving immediate financial help.
At Children’s Medical Nutrition Alliance we feel strongly that NO PARENT should have to choose between buying the medical nutrition that their child needs to survive and paying their power, gas or housing bill!
These patients and their families, regardless of the underlying illness, allergy or inborn error of metabolism that precipitated the need for medical nutrition, often need immediate, tangible financial help. CMNuA created the Fund for Food and Families (The Fund) to fill that need and to help effect some positive change in the lives of families whose children need medical nutrition. Launched in June of 2015, The Fund provides immediate emergency relief in the form of medical nutrition, diapers and certain medically related expenses.
Through The Fund, any minor child with a physician-documented need for medical nutrition who is unable to pay for medical nutrition or receive reimbursement from any third-party payers may receive up to ten cases of formula per year free of charge from CMNuA. Additionally those same individuals and their families may apply for and receive diapers and assistance with non-covered medically related expenses for parents or guardians who need to travel out of town with their affected child for treatment or testing related to the condition that necessitates the medical nutrition. While The Fund is young and has limited financial resources, CMNuA is here to help, and dedicated to growing and expanding the program through grants, corporate and private donations so that every US family in need of medical nutrition has a place to turn to receive the emergency assistance that they need.
Every dollar helps. Please consider supporting CMNuA and the Fund for Food and Families with your tax-deductible contribution today!
