Mission

A cancer diagnosis is one of the most devastating life events that patients and their families will face. The financial challenges that coincide with treatment are often as crippling as the disease. Cancer patients need direct fiscal support. That's why we do what we do. We keep cancer patients dignity foremost in mind, leverage strong partnerships, secure technology, and seamless processes to get cancer patients and families financial assistance quickly.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

"Financial Toxicity in Oncology," a term first used in 2013 by S. Yousuf Zafar, MD, and Amy P. Abernethy, MD, from Duke University, has now been cited in hundreds of studies and peer reviewed papers. But today, we seem no closer to solving the challenge at government, nor in healthcare, and even more problematic,

Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Housing & Utilities

Housing and utilities make up about 78% of a cancer patient and their family's needs at least three months in a year. That number is 71% four to five times a years. This includes mortgage payments, rents, fees, insurance, and of course water, gas, electricity, sewage, and garbage collection.

Our goal is to help patients keep their home and their possessions, and always preserve their dignity.

If our donees are renters, we keep them up to date and explore getting them out of their lease and in to a lesser expensive lease, or find a way to qualify them for a home, which in many cases is less expensive than a lease.

We take a whole family and dignity first approach, so school districts, work locations, friends, and family are always foremost in our support methodology.

Population(s) Served

67% of cancer patients have to travel more than 100 miles round trip for care and treatments, and gas & auto expenses, hotels, food, and incidentals cost patients $4,200 per year, on average.

That fiscal strain takes a significant toll on cancer patients and their families.

We provide direct support to pay these expenses.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

As long as there is cancer, there will be patient's that need fiscal support.

What we have found is that contact with a patient and their family is the critical first step.

Often, when people find themselves in need of fiscal support, it is after they have amassed debt that includes fees and penalties.
