The Michael Matters Foundation has announced another patient grant recipient today! Rashawn R. is a 20-year-old young man with a recurrent Ganglioglioma brain tumor. He is currently treating at Northwestern Medicine’s Chicago Proton Center. Rashawn will be using the $1,500 grant to assist him and his family with rent. His mother was forced to take time away from work to care for him.
Like Rashawn, thousands of families are dealing with the impact brain cancer has on so many different aspects of life including housing, food, childcare, accessibility, and insurance co-pays. We are very proud to be able to offer Rashawn some relief during this very challenging time.
