Conference Travel Assistance

Registration for the Triage Cancer Conferences is free. Register Today!

Triage Cancer is also pleased to offer travel assistance to cancer patients and survivors, who would like to attend one of the 2018 Triage Cancer Conferences, but would not otherwise be able to attend because of the cost of traveling to the conference.

Travel assistance is limited and applications are reviewed as they are received or until funds run out, so we encourage you to apply as soon as possible.

Travel assistance is available in the form of a gas card (up to $50) to cover the cost of traveling by car to one of the conferences. Triage Cancer will also reimburse the cost of one night stay at the conference hotel (room fee and taxes only; individuals will be responsible for any other incidentals). Individuals are only eligible for travel assistance once per calendar year. Applicants are responsible for arranging and paying for their own travel.
