Medical Relief Fund

A family’s ability to pay should never affect the level of care they receive.

We envision a world where every baby has access to safe human milk

Providing safe donor milk to babies in need requires strict adherence to guidelines and protocols developed by the Human Milk Bank Association of North American (HMBANA). To ensure the safety of our donor milk, these protocols require our recipients to pay a processing fee. The Milk Bank offers Tre’s Medical Relief Fund, an application-based sliding scale program, for families with medical needs and financial barriers.

Available to families in Indiana, Kentucky and Missouri, Tre’s Medical Relief Fund provides life-saving medicine to a baby in need.

Tre’s Story

In February of 2017 Olivia Cammack was three months pregnant with her son, Tre. She was also diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma – for the second time. After Tre’s birth, Olivia breastfed him for a few short weeks before beginning cancer treatment. Because Olivia knew how important an exclusive diet of human milk was for Tre, she reached out to The Milk Bank.
