How did TAF get started?
Our founders were moved by the story of a woman battling bone marrow cancer and unable to afford the $4,000 monthly cost of her prescribed medication. That one personal story sparked the formation of The Assistance Fund in 2009. And since then, we’ve helped over 40,000 patients and their families afford medical treatment.
Our vision is to see the day when no person goes without medication due to an inability to pay. Until then, we exist so that patients (like you) don’t have to miss taking your medication because of cost.
Medical Advisory Board
The members of our Medical Advisory Board are leading experts in their fields. We wouldn’t be who we are without them. They offer strategic advice and counsel to the Board of Directors on a wide range of topics. Plus they review our programs and recommend funding for research grant awards.
Board of Directors
We’re so thankful for our Board of Directors. Each member is an accomplished professional who believes in our purpose, fully equipped to set the right pace for our operations and future development. We don’t take their help lightly. Our board is responsible for all decisions related to program criteria and financial awards. They guide and assist our leadership team, while ensuring accountability to our donors and patients.
Our management team arrives every day with passion and devotion in tow, working hard to reach our vision. Meet some of our dedicated team members.
