Breaking Barriers
to Care

The Al Copeland Foundation Patient Assistance Program stands as a testament to our organization’s unwavering commitment to eliminating barriers to the best cancer care available, particularly for pediatric patients engaged in clinical trials. Launched through the SuperDucks campaign in 2022, the Patient Assistance Fund emerged as a beacon of support for families of children diagnosed with cancer. The program’s primary focus is to alleviate the financial burden faced by these families, providing grants that cover a spectrum of expenses, including household bills, transportation, food, supplemental medicine, and lodging.
