MusiCares Can Help Cover Life-Saving Treatment Costs
Everyone needs a helping hand from time to time, and for music people in times of dire need, MusiCares is always there to lend that helping hand, in whatever form can do the most good.
For a musician or music professional facing a profoundly distressing diagnosis like cancer, the thought of finding a way to cover the exorbitant costs of lifesaving treatments without the assistance of health insurance can easily turn what already appears to be a near-insurmountable situation into a despairingly impossible predicament.
That’s why MusiCares makes the commitment to qualified music professionals to help them cover the costs of life-saving medical treatments and offset the oftentimes astronomical expenses that can pile up through repeated hospital visits, major procedures, and maintenance check-ups.
Here's what one recent client has to say about the assistance she was able to receive through MusiCares' critical safety net:
I just wanted to drop a short note to accompany my donation of $500 - enclosed. I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer May 1, 2006 and I found myself in a world of hurt on so many fronts...of course the bills still roll in whether you're facing death or not! MusiCares helped me significantly, paying for many necessities during the lowest point in my life. You helped me to the tune of $5,000. While it's taken me about 11 years, I'm hoping to repay that gift in full this year. I've been "making payments" aka "donations" since 2015. I know that you ask for nothing in return, but the fact that I can (even if it's only a bit at a time and it's taking so long), means so much to me.
