Catastrophic Injuries and Illnesses

The 4R Foundation has instituted a program to provide direct assistance to a specific class of individuals who have suffered from a catastrophic injury and/or illness, and lack the financial resources to pay for necessary medical and medically related expenses. Through this program, our Foundation is able to assist patients and their families over many months or years as they face long-term challenges with uncovered medical expenses.

As an individual qualifying for grant assistance, an approved campaign may receive direct payment of, or reimbursement for, necessary medical expenses. More specifically, the funds raised can be used to pay for uninsured medical and medically related expenses, such as the following:

  • Health insurance premiums, deductibles, and co-payments
  • Medications
  • Travel expenses for rehabilitation and treatment
  • Relocation or moving expenses due to illness (such as in the case of moving to be closer to a rehabilitation center or hospital for treatment)
  • Temporary housing due to relocation
  • Mileage, tolls, and parking fees for visits to rehabilitation center or hospital
  • Specially equipped vans and durable medical equipment
  • Home modification related to illness
  • Home health care services
  • Physical therapy and vocational rehabilitation
  • Experimental treatments
  • Burial/cremation expenses in the event patient passes away
