Why do you need a doctor's signature?
It is very important that the doctor, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner attest to the leukemia diagnosis and need for assistance through the Leukemia Texas Patient Aid program. In addition to your doctor’s signature, an additional member of the medical staff (i.e. Social Worker, Financial Advisor, Practice Manager) must sign the application. This requirement is to ensure that the applicant is in need of financial assistance due to the expenses incurred from having leukemia.
Why do you request a photo to accompany the application?
This request is optional so it is not required to complete the application. However, the reason we ask for you include a photo is so that in the event that you are selected to receive aid, we are able to put a face to the person who is benefiting from the Leukemia Texas Patient Aid. If you do decide to share your photo(s), DO NOT FAX the photo. (It is ok to fax the written application)
What are the eligibility requirements for a LeukemiaTexas patient aid grant?
You must be diagnosed with leukemia and be under the current treatment of a licensed physician and you must be both a U.S. citizen and legal Texas resident.
