Patients grappling with a cancer diagnosis face a mountain of hurdles to overcome from the moment of diagnosis through the treatment process and into recovery and remission. Patients seeking help come from all walks of life and demographics, from a variety of age-groups and from all across the Upper Cumberland. Every year the Cancer Center treats over 800 new cancer patients!
Many patients struggle not only in dealing with their cancer but with financial hardship due to fighting the disease. Cancer can mean time off work or unemployment, dozens of trips to and from treatment, expensive medicines, etc. Our Cancer Care Program is designed to meet some of the charitable needs of patients. We can provide food when patients cannot afford it, pay for some medications, pay a utility bill, pay for transportation, etc… so that these financial barriers don’t hinder a patient from completing their cancer treatments. No one should have to forego cancer treatment because they can’t afford to meet basic needs. You can help. Your gift will provide the assistance needed to ensure that a cancer patient can continue treatment without the burden of worrying about providing the essentials for their family. 100% of your gift goes toward direct care for cancer patients in the Upper Cumberland!
