Patient / Caregiver Grant Program
Upon receiving an indication of interest and application from an
individual diagnosed with cancer or affected by a loved one’s
diagnosis, a patient coordinator will discuss with that individual and his
or her family to determine a recreational strategy that will assist
in their management of the illness and in their recovery. Whether
the outlet is biking, tennis, skiing, knitting, surfing, art lessons,
karate classes, fishing, piano, theater, pottery, yoga, golf, hiking,
team soccer, or any other recreational pursuit, Seas It will work
to connect people with their favorite activities.
Once the activity is determined,
Seas It will work toward making the activity a reality and a regular
part of the person’s mental and physical recovery process.
Seas It will do one or more of the following: provide administrative
support to set up the activity (make phone calls, fill out paperwork,
schedule appointments, etc.), pay for any necessary equipment required
for the activity, and/or fund classes, membership fees or any other
activity-related expense within its budget. Seas It will work to
establish beneficial partnerships with community organizations that
may reduce or waive their fees for services, products or equipment

Seas It will also develop its own network of recreational
experts who regularly donate their time to promote its mission.

of an active lifestyle and a positive attitude in the fight against
cancer and in its prevention.

be selected on a first come, first serve basis without discrimination
on the basis of gender, race, religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation.
Each potential participant will be interviewed by at least one patient coordinator
to verify the patient’s situation and to evaluate the most
effective way to promote recovery through recreation both for the
patient and members of his or her family distressed by the patient’s
diagnosis. Ultimately a physician must also verify a patient’s
condition and approve that person for Seas It’s programs and
