Bridging the Gap is a patient support fund, soliciting funds for direct patient support for Tulane Cancer Center patients facing treatment-related costs. These needs range from transportation, to oral nutritional supplementation support, to support for dental work required to start cancer treatments to any and all other out of pocket needs faced by our patients as they fight for their lives. Direct questions and queries to kharris11@tulane.edu or 504-439-1111.
