Financial Support


The exorbitant cost of long-term care for a child battling a critical illness can financially cripple even the most well-prepared family. Me Fine knows that these families, who are already dealing with incredible emotional hardship, need fast, hassle-free help without lengthy applications and additional screening processes. Me Fine works closely with social workers and staff members at Duke Medical Center, WakeMed Children’s Hospital, and the NC Children’s Hospital to help fund hospital emotional and psychosocial support programs. In addition, Me Fine provides tangible goods, services, and financial support by working directly with lienholders and service providers to provide funds via direct transfer.  

We know that every family’s needs are unique and often unpredictable during a time of crisis. For that reason, we offer assistance in a variety of ways. Some common examples are provided below:

“When I was in the hospital with my daughter, it became all about her, but the bills never stopped. I didn’t know what to do. When I called Me Fine I literally felt a weight lift off my shoulders.” —Anonymous
