The letter must include the applicant’s name, date of birth and a brief case history confirming diagnosis, and must be accompanied by a completed version of our HIPAA Release Form.


Additional letters of support from friends, family, teachers, therapists, or additional members of your medical team will also be accepted and can be listed under Section II of the HIPAA Release Form.


Grant Request application and supporting documentation MUST BE SUBMITTED AS A SINGLE PACKAGE (including application, doctor's letter, HIPAA form, and all other supporting documentation together) or be subject to exclusion.

Documentation packages can be emailed to grants@PAS.care or sent via physical mail (strongly suggested***) to:
