Raise Awareness. Provide Support. Bring Hope.

Apply for Financial Assistance

The mission of Kelly’s Dream, a non-profit 501(c)(3) foundation is to help ease the financial and emotional strain of cancer and raise melanoma awareness.  

Funds raised by Kelly’s Dream allow us to offer limited financial assistance to families in Maryland for practical living expenses that have suddenly become too difficult to pay when an individual is undergoing treatment for cancer.  We offer assistance up to $300 per year for non-medical expenses such as the cost of transportation to and from treatment, food, child care, utilities and other daily living expenses.  

To apply, please complete and submit the application. Applications are considered on a case-by-case basis, and determined on a number of factors including but not limited to:

  • Have a diagnosis of cancer as confirmed by an oncology health care provider
  • Currently in active treatment for melanoma or other cancers
  • Live in Maryland
  • Have an immediate financial need that is interfering with treatment plan
