Family Grants

A Pseudomyxoma Survivor Family Grant is a one-off payment of up to £250 awarded to those affected by pseudomyxoma peritonei (PMP) or appendix cancer, be they a patient or a family member.

Grants can be used for a wide range of practical needs, such as help with bills or towards a short break

As we have a limited amount of funding available each year, grants will be awarded on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Awards are limited to one grant for each family within a twelve-month period, at the discretion of the Financial Assistance Committee.

How do I apply for a Family Grant?

You will need to apply for a Family Grant by completing the Application for Financial Assistance form and returning it to Pseudomyxoma Survivor.

We will notify you as to whether your application has been approved or we may ask you to provide us with further information to allow us to make an assessment; if successful, payment will be made within ten working days. For more information, please contact [email protected].

Life and its uncertainties are hard enough as a cancer patient but when your income is so low that you don’t have the money to travel to see a cancer specialist, the door of hope and a future for your life is closed to you. That’s what I was facing, but Pseudomyxoma Survivor gave me a financial grant which opened that door for me so I could travel to see my cancer specialist to get the treatment I desperately needed to save my life. They are lifesavers. I am truly grateful to them for their assistance. Pseudomyxoma Survivor is a wonderful charity and very responsible with their finances so if you’re looking for a good charity to donate to please send it to Pseudomyxoma Survivor so everyone has a chance to get cancer treatment.

We are very grateful to have received a grant from Pseduomyxoma trust this has helped our family in our time of need. My husband who had surgery at the end of November 2017 was feeling very cold on his return from hospital, the funding helped towards extra heating costs that we had incurred.

The funding also helped towards both of our reduced income, also my husband lost three stone during the surgery so also helped towards extra food that was recommended by hospital staff to increase his weight and stamina.
