Pardee Cancer Treatment Fund of Midland/Gladwin Counties and Williams Township
Provides financial assistance for cancer-related medical expenses.
The Pardee Cancer Treatment Fund of Midland/Gladwin Counties and Williams Township administers approximately $600,000.00 per year which is used in rendering financial assistance, when needed, to cancer patients residing in Midland/Gladwin Counties and Williams Township. Major support of the Pardee Cancer Treatment Fund’s work is provided by the Elsa U. Pardee Foundation plus donations and memorials from the public.
Midland Pardee Fund’s success inspired the creation of sister funds in Bay County, Clare County, Isabella County and Gratiot County. The Midland office handles the process for the other four Pardee offices when they have a patient in need.
Our staff is here to assist patients:
- understand the terms of their insurance
- applying for Medicaid and Social Security Disability benefits
- applying for financial assistance through different facilities
- referral assistance to organizations that provide services for patients in need (housekeeping, driving services, etc.)
By providing these services, we try to relieve the patients' and their families of the financial and emotional burdens and the overwhelming challenges that they have to deal with as they go through their cancer journey.
