Seas It offers two types of grants.
Patient and Caregiver Grant
Our original Patient and Caregiver Grant is designed for the patient undergoing treatments and the caregiver providing support. Seas It assists in the coordination of and provides financial assistance for recreational activities geared toward mental and physical recovery. Grant recipients are encouraged to pursue activities that make them feel vibrant, positive, and in control during cancer treatments. Examples include but are not limited to: biking, tennis, skiing, knitting, surfing, art lessons, karate classes, fishing, piano, theater, pottery, yoga, golf, hiking, and team soccer.

The Todd McGovern Legacy Grant
The Todd McGovern Legacy Grant is larger in scope and funding than a traditional Seas It grant. This will be given annually to one recipient who exemplifies Seas It co-founder, Todd McGovern’s, commitment to “seasing it” while fighting cancer, and to inspiring other cancer fighters to persevere and live a little each day.
The recipient of the 2013 Legacy Grant completed a one-man marathon in St. John’s, Newfoundland, inspired by Canadian athlete/cancer activist, Terry Fox’s 3107-mile “Marathon of Hope.” The recipient’s run was his final step in completing a compelling and personal screenplay aimed at curing cancer through education, fundraising, and hope.
