How We Help

Since My Breast Cancer Support was launched in 2011, we have helped over 5,000 local breast cancer patients.

HOPE CHESTS
Each cancer center has a HOPE CHEST filled with gas cards, department store gift cards, restaurant gift certificates and movie passes. Items are distributed to patients whenever a staff member sees the need.

PATIENT ASSISTANCE GRANTS –
Too many patients struggle financially. These grants help pay for groceries, cleaning, repairs, heating fuel, utility bills, rent/mortgage, and more.

  • Nurse Navigators may access online applications here: Click here. NOTE: This application must be filled out with the patient.

FAMILY SUPPORT
Breast cancer affects family members too. We provide books to help families cope, and pay for special family nights out.

WELLNESS PROGRAMS
When a patient is first diagnosed, each receives a New Patient Gift Bag filled with comforting gifts. We also help them to participate in exercise/health programs.

TRAVEL SCHOLARSHIPS
We help patients to be able to attend breast cancer conferences and retreats.

We will even fulfill a last wish…

“I am so grateful for the help you are giving me … I’m overwhelmed! It will be a tremendous burden off of my mind and heart. It’s such a relief not to have to worry so much about finances during this time. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
