Supporting Young Adult Cancer Survivors


Expect Miracles Foundation’s SAMFund provides critical financial resources to young adult cancer survivors twice a year through grants in two categories: Financial Assistance Grants and Family Building Grants. SAMFund grants were first awarded in 2005 in response to the higher rates of financial toxicity among young adult survivors compared to other age groups and the lack of dedicated resources specifically for this population. In 2019, SAMFund grants became a program of the Expect Miracles Foundation. In total, over 2,300 grants totaling more than $3.6 million dollars have been awarded to young adults as they recover from the financial impact of cancer.
