The Kosciusko County Cancer Care Fund, administered by K21 Health Foundation, provides assistance to financially-eligible residents of Kosciusko County who are suffering from cancer. The purpose of the fund is to relieve some of the financial strain that often accompanies that dreaded diagnosis. The assistance provided includes but is not limited to items such as rent or mortgage payments, utilities, insurance, food, car payments, and prescription medications.
In 2016 the Cancer Care Fund provided financial assistance almost 100 Kosciusko County cancer patients and their families. The fund disbursed nearly $135,000 for items such as rent or mortgage payments, utilities, insurance, food, and prescription medications, just to name a few. The funds are primarily raised by a group of dedicated individuals in Kosciusko County who volunteer hundreds of hours each year to plan a number of fundraising events, such as the 5K, Cocktails event, Golf Outing, Gala and Auction.
