Sponsor a Patient - $25 per month

For the cost of just $25 a month, Med to One sponsors provide the medication needed by a patient with a chronic condition.  Depending on the patient and the condition, the medicine may allow the patient to resume a normal life, with the condition under control. You may also contact Med to One at info@med2one.org and ask to be assigned a patient.

Sponsors who wish to support multiple patients should sign-up once per each patient using the button above, or email info@med2one.org
