How to Get Financial Help From Cancer Alliance of Help & Hope, Inc.
A cancer diagnosis can destroy the financial health and well-being of a patient and his or her family. While in active treatment, many patients are unable to work and experience a loss of income that can result in catastrophic financial losses and the need to rebuild financial health. Cancer Alliance Fund distributes short-term financial aid for basic living expenses, on behalf of cancer patients who have lost all or a part of their income during active treatment. Payments are made directly to the patient’s creditors.
