When a patient is diagnosed with cancer they often incur expenses related to their treatments that they didn’t expect and that aren’t covered by their medical insurance. Things like getting to their appointments when they are not able to drive due to their illness, the need for nutritional supplements to prevent weight loss due to their treatment, or a special compression garment to reduce swelling from breast cancer treatment. These unexpected needs can cause significant financial distress to patients, an additional burden they do not need at this already-stressful time.

While many non-profits choose to support cancer research, we wanted our funds to go directly to as many patients as possible, and to remain in the local communities where they were raised. While cancer research is important, it will only help future patients, and we wanted to help patients who need it NOW.
