Battling cancer is never easy. It’s often a long and difficult journey. Team Tyman stands ready to support our friends and family as they travel this road - literally. By providing gas gift cards to cancer patients living in rural areas. We ease the burden of paying for gas as you travel miles, often days at a time, to treatment centers.
Cancer patients measure time in hours, months, and years. Some patients, who live in small towns and rural communities, measure something even more critical: miles. The distance to treatment often causes patients to settle for less effective options or, worse, they delay or forego treatment altogether.
Team Tyman firmly believes that not having money for gas should never be the reason someone gives up. Team Tyman’s gas card program helps to eliminate at least one barrier to better health.
Are you a cancer patient within a 50-mile radius of Ada, Oklahoma, and traveling more than 25 miles to a treatment center?
If the answer is yes, you may qualify for up to $250 in gas card assistance per calendar year. (Income level is not a factor.)
Team Tyman partners with Mercy Cancer Center and the Chickasaw Nation Purchase Referred Care Program in Ada, Oklahoma to provide qualifying patients with assistance while in the treatment center. Please ask your care provider about the Team Tyman program.
Team Tyman is a good steward of your generous donations. Our goal is to keep operating expenses at less than 4% of annual donations.
