The Tutu Project announced today that we are releasing $15,000 for immediate relief to breast cancer patients struggling to feed their families during the pandemic. Fund distribution will be managed through a partnership with Vital Options International, whose team will be vetting breast cancer applicants and distributing funds for short-term support.

Both nonprofits recognize that the communities they serve are among the high-risk populations for COVID-19 because they may be immune-compromised due to cancer treatment, and want to support any effort to ensure they are home focusing on their health.

Expediting Your Application – Mention The Tutu Project

Vital Options requires that patients are vetted before receiving a grant. We selected a partnership with them because their process is straightforward and can be done on their website. IN ORDER TO EXPEDITE YOUR APPLICATION, please mention our name in the “Optional Message” section of the application.
