Our healthcare system is broken
Too often, our nation’s seniors are asked to make heartbreaking choices, like deciding between paying for groceries or medications.
That’s why the PAN Foundation exists. We provide a financial lifeline for people who have nowhere else to turn when a serious diagnosis strikes by helping with the out-of-pocket medication costs for nearly 70 diseases and offering support for other critical services like transportation. Our mission is to ensure that no one ever has to go without treatment.
But we can’t do it alone. Every year, we have to turn away thousands of people who are seeking assistance in their greatest time of need. With your help, we can lower that number.

When you help us expand our safety net programs, you’re working toward ending poverty and achieving better health outcomes for the people who it most.
Goal 1: No poverty
Senior poverty is on the rise. Yet we can’t end poverty in the U.S. without helping our nations’ aging adults afford their rising healthcare costs. Our programs provide a vital safety net for those at their most vulnerable: seriously ill people with limited savings or support.
Having financial relief has enabled me to focus on healing without worrying about where the next treatment money will come from.Mary Johnson, grant recipient | living with colorectal cancer
Goal 3: Good health and well-being
When cost is prohibitive, both research and our daily interactions show that older adults skip or go without treatment. Your contributions have a measurable difference in their ability to stay on treatment and achieve better health outcomes.
The co-pays are astronomical—there is no way that I could afford them. The assistance I have received from the PAN Foundation has given me a life: 21 years living with stage four.Cheryl Tompot, grant recipient | living with metastatic breast cancer
