ServicesZSRF plays an important role in helping people whose lives are impacted by cancer, for over 26 years. Your generosity over these past many years, has assisted us in creating programs that fund the tremendous expenses incurred by cancer patients. 
Medical Expenses
Medical Expenses
Not having the funds to pay medical bills can be one of the most stressful events to encounter while undergoing treatment for cancer. Your dollars can assist those families in affording their cancer related expenses and help them experience emotional and financial relief. Occasionally medications, diagnostic tests and treatments are not covered by insurance. Uncovered, denied or extra consultation medical expenses can now be funded. No longer does one have to be denied treatment because the insurance did not cover the consultation or procedure.
Fulfill A Dream
Fulfill a Dream
Zichron Shlome Refuah Fund makes dreams come true for over 26 years. They fund tailor made requests to bring joy to patients and their families, since fulfilling a child's longings and desires at these most difficult moments brings infinite satisfaction and hope. The smiles and hugs that are reciprocated are priceless rewards collected at these junctures. Through your donation, you can help cancer patients experience fulfillment of their dreams. It could be a toy, game, meaningful outing, concert, or a trip away from home. Surely, the possibilities are endless.
Wigs
Wigs
ZSRF funds wigs fashioned to the young and old patients' needs. Embarrassment caused by appearing different should not hold back a child from attending school. Hair pieces can be barely noticeable when crated by talented hands. Adults, too, want to appear with confidence as they appear in public, not wanting to call attention to their hair loss. ZSRF also funds artificial beards and peyos for men suffering hair loss due to chemo treatment.
Vitamin Therapy
Vitamin Therapy
Insurance companies generally do not cover natural supplements and alternative therapies. Chemotherapy and radiation treatment can deplete some vitamins necessary for healing, especially if lack of appetite or nausea is present. ZSRF recognizes the importance of nutritional supplements while on treatment and assists with funding those bills.
Rent and Utilities
Mortgage, Rent and Utilities
Sometimes, paying for the basic life necessities are the most difficult ones for cancer patients. Keeping up with mortgage payments, rent or utilities could be most stressful. Being threatened with an eviction, while faced with paying for a lifesaving medication is a horrific predicament for a cancer patient to face. ZSRF assists families with their families with their bills so they don't have to choose between shelter or medicine. ZSRF helps pay for both and alleviates their financial concerns.
Housekeepers
Housekeepers
Normal family routine is frequently disrupted by catastrophic illness. Parents often must spend days and nights attending to the needs of the ill family member, and at times in distant locations. To alleviate this situation, ZSRF funds housekeepers. They greet the children returning from school and fortify them with a nourishing meal. They ease and soothe the children as they prepare them for bed with stories and words of encouragement. They help diminish the pain that that is part of this horrific chapter.
Retreats
Retreats
ZSRF provides a far reaching innovative program to refresh those in the "center of the hurricane" and recoup their strength for a few days in a beautiful hotel environment. Such mini retreats reenergize families for months ahead.
Transportation
Transportation
ZSRF provides transportation to medical appointments, tests and treatments that can otherwise be way beyond a family's means. Car service bills and parking expenses are reimbursed when a patient visits a medical facility.
Summer Camps
Summer Camps
Children regain a sense of normalcy when they are able to go to a summer camp and enjoy fun activities that are NOT centered on their illness. The peer socialization and bonding help refuel youngsters to enable them to cope when they return home. Parents, too, are most grateful for this service as it allows them respite time and a chance to focus on the rest of the family.
Plane Tickets
Plane Tickets
Air fare, lodging and food are not covered by insurances, and their costs can be astronomical. ZSRF helps families travel to obtain the best medical care possible, even it means travelling across the country. They eliminate the fear of "maybe we cannot afford the trip and its related expenses."


Insurance
Insurance
When the breadwinner is stricken with cancer and cannot work, bills remain unpaid. Timely insurance payments at this time are most crucial. A cancer patient should never be denied help due to lack of insurance coverage. Zichron Shlome Refuah Fund helps cover Insurance Payments and copayments, guaranteeing continuous coverage, ensuring the patient's ability to receive the medical help he/she so critically requires.
