About the Providence Foundation’s Cancer Patient Assistance Fund:

More than 30 years ago, the family of Linda Baltzell made a generous memorial donation to begin a cancer patient assistance fund in her name. They mad the gift as a way of expressing their appreciation for the care she had received at Providence and to honor her memory. The fund, now known as the Linda Baltzell Cancer Patient Assistance Fund, has been a godsend for patients through the years, helping to pay for things such as medical needs, prescriptions, utilities, food and other critical expenses when families are facing difficult financial circumstances.

Although Providence offers a generous charity care program, some patients don’t meet the criteria for charity care but are still in need of some limited financial assistance. The Linda Baltzell Cancer Patient Assistance Fund can help fill in the gap as a safety net. However, in meeting the growing need, the fund is often stretched beyond its limits. When Linda’s fund was initiated more than 30 years ago, the population of Snohomish County was about 300,000. The population today is 686,000 and the need for financial assistance among cancer patients has grown substantially.

With the help of the community and fundraising events, The Linda Baltzell Cancer Patient Assistance Fund can replenish and continue the legacy of Linda Baltzell.
