Peter Hort Quality of Life Cancer Grant

Rema Hort Mann Foundation’s Peter Hort Quality of Life Cancer Grant brings family members and loved ones together in order to provide much needed support and consolation while a patient is undergoing treatment. We believe patients benefit tremendously, not just emotionally but also therapeutically, from the support of family and friends.

RHMF works directly with social workers to tailor each grant to the patient’s needs. Beyond what is traditionally offered through healthcare insurance, PHQOL Cancer Grants ensure that the patient is taken care of emotionally. PHQOL Cancer Grants have helped to provide funds to cover costs such as travel, phone cards, childcare, hotel accommodations, and car rentals. Since 1995, RHMF has made a difference in hundreds of patients’ lives.

“From my experience as both a physician and a patient, I’ve come to learn that more is needed to treat cancer than surgery and chemotherapy. Patients benefit tremendously from the support of family and friends. Recognizing this critical element in the fight against cancer, The Rema Hort Mann Foundation does everything in its power to enhance a patient’s social support network, from flying in relatives from distant places to providing funds for childcare so that a husband or wife can be with their spouse during treatment.”  David Biro, RHMF board member and physician

“The gift from Rema Hort Mann Foundation was a light in the darkness we had been living in for almost a year. Instead of thinking about the cancer treatment, I am now planning a trip to visit my son. For me and my husband the grant was a gift of seeing beyond cancer.”
