The Toledo Clinic Foundation
The mission of The Toledo Clinic Foundation is to provide financial assistance for patients of the doctors at the Toledo Clinic who are currently undergoing treatment and are in financial need. Doctors, nurses and staff of The Toledo Clinic have been supporting patients through the Oncology Patient Assistance Fund for many years. They have contributed from their own pockets, run bake sales and other grass roots fund raising efforts to help their patients. However, the need is greater than ever. They can’t do it alone.
If you are a patient of a Toledo Clinic Physician and are having trouble with expenses over and above your medical treatment, we can help. The Toledo Clinic Foundation can help with rent, transportation, utility bills, child care, etc.
