Purple Ribbon
Assistance Program

The Purple Ribbon Assistance Program was established to provide support and resources to individuals going through treatment. Michelle’s Place realizes that fighting cancer is difficult enough without having to be concerned about how you will get to your next doctor’s appointment, put food on the table or pay your bills. We understand the financial costs associated with cancer treatment can be a strain on families, even those with health insurance. Michelle’s Place can help and/or provide referrals to support services and other financial resources.

General Requirements

  • Live in Riverside or San Bernardino Counties, Fallbrook, Rainbow or Bonsall.
  • Must be in active cancer treatment.

Qualified Applicants are Eligible to Receive:

  • Grocery Gift Cards
  • Backpacks & school supplies for their school-aged children (K-12).
  • Thanksgiving Meals
  • Holiday program supporting the family.

"This illness has affected my whole family including my children. However, my children were able to participate in several events such as the back-to-school picnic, where they received backpacks and enjoyed a fun filled day. We were offered a Thanksgiving basket. We also participated in a Christmas party event where a big bag of toys was given to my kids. Also, our family was offered a Christmas tree and given a huge teddy bear! If you could only see the look on my kid's faces. It was priceless!"
