FIRST realizes that the fight against ichthyosis is not only medical, but also financial. As families of affected individuals maintain their daily routine of treatments, it can be complicated by the ongoing costs of medical supplies and other comforting aids and procedures.
Thanks to the generosity of a donor, FIRST has established the Jane & Henry Bukaty Skin Care Fund to help alleviate some of the financial burden that may be facing our members. Here’s your opportunity to apply for some financial assistance for ichthyosis treatment. Since the fund is limited, the following criteria must be met by the applicant in order to be eligible for a grant.
The applicant must be a registered in our database and is required to submit an application indicating his/her need for funding. The application can be downloaded here. The application requests the specific product/treatment/cooling device for which funds are needed and also requests a demonstration of the financial need for this product/treatment/cooling device.
Awards will not exceed $200.00 and will be awarded two times per year, in February and August as determined by the Review Committee. Applicants will be eligible to receive one award every two years. The deadline to submit applications is January 31 and July 31.
