Throughout the year, we will be providing ongoing support to Alejandro and Izaac, our other finalists, through professional assistance in navigating insurance questions and opportunities, fundraising, and other avenues. We are hopeful to connect them to the care they need as well.
We wish that we could fund all of our applicants, and hope to provide even more support in the future. We will accept applications for the 2019 cycle beginning November 1. Learn more about the program
