Expect Miracles Foundation’s Samfund provides critical resources to young adult cancer survivors. They help young adults who are struggling with expenses through two grant categories: Financial Assistance Grants and Family Building Grants. They award Financial Assistance Grants twice per year to provide assistance for essential living expenses such as rent or mortgage supplementation, car payments, continuing education, fertility storage, and reconstructive procedures. They award Family Building Grants twice a year to help young adult cancer survivors cover expenses related to medical services such as IVF, IUI, gestational carrier, surrogacy, adoption, and fertility testing.
