UF Health Proton Therapy Institute Patient Experience Fund

UF Health Proton Therapy Institute recognizes that a successful treatment experience requires a warm, welcoming, and supportive environment for patients of all ages.  Our patient experience programs are a crucial component of this holistic care.  Activities supported by the Patient Experience Fund include Wednesday Lunches, Prostate Follow-Up Clinics, Support Groups, and more. Importantly, these programs are not covered by insurance, therefore philanthropic support is vital. Click Here.

UF Health Proton Therapy Institute For the Children Fund

UF Health Proton Therapy Institute is a leader in pediatric proton therapy, treating more pediatric patients than any other proton facility in the world.  A successful pediatric treatment experience requires a comprehensive approach that provides our youngest patients with the chance to enjoy life despite being diagnosed with cancer.  To achieve this mission, the For the Children Fund supports a child life specialist, a driver and van transport, and two artists-in-residence.    These resources are our most helpful tools in making treatment easier for pediatric patients.
