Thanks to the generosity of Jane and Henry Bukaty, 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 registered in FIRST's database and is required to submit an application indicating his or her need for funding and a note from your doctor.  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. Applicants receiving funds from the Diya & Aliya Friends Fund, will not be eligible to also receive funds from the Jane & Henry Bukaty Skin Care Fund. The deadline to submit applications is January 31 and July 31.

Applications can be downloaded and emailed to the national office or mailed to the attention of: 

Skin Care Fund
Foundation for Ichthyosis & Related Skin Types, Inc.®
PO Box 1067
Lansdale, PA 19446

You will be contacted by the office if you have been awarded aid from this fund.
