Keeping families financially stable while cancer patients receive treatment is Cancer Alliance’s primary focus. 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’s 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.
For cancer patients who live in Palm Beach County, assistance is provided with the following everyday living expenses: Rent or mortgage, utilities, food, auto and health insurance and car payments. Payments are made directly to the patient’s creditors.
