Concerned about travel expenses?

Traveling to get the appropriate care can be daunting. Fortunately, there are non-profits, foundations, and funds available that may provide free travel or financial assistance. Financial support in other areas may also indirectly offset the costs for those who do not qualify for travel-and-lodging-specific resources.
