JJ’s Legacy offers financial support for Kern County residents who are waiting for a life-saving transplant or have already received a transplant. During their transplant journey, recipients face many challenges. JJ’s Legacy supports its recipients with Financial Assistance Grants that can help cover medical costs including insurance premiums, doctor’s visits, prescription medicine, lab work, travel expenses, and lodging associated with the post-transplant recovery.
JJ’s Legacy supports its recipients with travel expense assistance in order to alleviate the financial barriers travel expenses can create for recipients who are required to visit the transplant centers multiple times. Our Medical Transportation Gas Card Program defrays the cost of multiple out-of-town medical visits to the transplant centers for recipients completing an evaluation to be placed on the organ transplant list.
Fresh Food Box
JJ’s Legacy is partnered with a local non-profit organization to provide its recipients Fresh Food boxes. Our goal is to support individuals’ nutrition during their transplant journey and post-transplant. The boxes contain approximately 30 pounds of locally grown, fresh fruits, vegetables, and meats.
