The Michael Matters Foundation, through its partnership with Northwestern Medicine’s Chicago Proton Center, has awarded another $1,500 patient grant! Courtney B., 30-years-old, was diagnosed with a Pilocytic Astrocytoma (recurrence) in September 2016. She has two young children ages 7 and 1. Courtney will use these funds to assist with transportation costs to her proton radiation appointments, help cover her insurance co-pays, and help with childcare costs while she is receiving treatment. We wish Courtney the very best as she goes through this very difficult time.
