RE: Requesting financial help for medical treatment

Dear Name of Receiver,

This letter is to request assistance for purchasing the medications I need to treat [NAME of DISEASE]. The medicine was prescribed by my specialist [NAME of DOCTOR] on [DATE].

I was referred to your organization by my doctor because the medications I need to take for the rest of my life are too expensive for me to afford on my fixed retirement income. 

I understand that you give assistance to people who are eligible either by helping them pay for their medications or with free or very low-cost medicines. 

I have completed the application form on your website and enclose a copy of it here. I have also enclosed a letter from my doctor stating that the medicine is required for me to continue my everyday activities.

Also, I have enclosed a copy of my medical record regarding my disease including a copy of the prescription and my last three bank financial statements.

As you can see, the cost of the medicine, which is COST, is a very high percentage of my monthly income. 

Thank you for your attention to this matter. I can be reached at 555-123-4567 or at if you have any questions or require more information. I hope to have a favorable reply from you soon.
