At The FAVA Foundation, we know first hand how overwhelming it can be when you or your child has to undergo a surgical procedure, particularly, when it involves travel to another state, and the added burden of additional expenses.

In hopes to lessen the financial burden associated with access to medical care and travel expenses,The FAVA Foundation is introducing a new program we lovingly refer to as, One Less Thing.  If you or a loved one is traveling out of state for an extended hospital stay, please consider applying for our program so that you have One Less Thing to worry about. 

To qualify for One Less Thing, you or your child must have a diagnosis of Fibro Adipose Vascular Anomaly (FAVA) and be traveling out of state for treatment.
Examples of potentially covered expenses are:

  • Travel costs

  • Lodging expenses

  • Cost of Meals

Application Process:
Please complete the application in its entirety and submit it to The FAVA Foundation. Each application will be reviewed by the Board of Directors to determine eligibility. To apply please email us at for an application.

You will need to identify the dollar amount of financial assistance you are requesting, and provide documentation of the expenses incurred. Provision of monetary assistance will be determined by the Board of Directors, as based on The FAVA Foundation’s ability to assist.

Once we receive your application, you will be notified of the same via email or by phone, and your application will be reviewed at the next Board of Directors meeting.

For those of you who do receive financial assistance, we would love to speak with you about your experience with our One Less Thing program to secure your feedback and make the program even better.

Wishing you all the very best of health.
The FAVA Foundation Board of Directors.
