Financial Treatment Program

Financial Guidebook

Families can receive a free digital Financial Guidebook that includes potential upcoming health costs, saving strategies, easy action steps, checklists, and lists of vetted financial resources so you can get familiar with the financial side effects of cancer. 

Resource Navigation

Resource Navigators will complete a financial needs assessment to determine which resources the family is eligible for. Resources include emergency financial assistance, support for temporary lodging and transportation, guidance on government policies, and referrals to other financial programs.

Financial Planning

We may recommend that a family meet with Certified Financial Planners. This free financial planning service will help a family organize their finances, prioritize bills, reduce their debt, consider cost-saving opportunities, and plan for the future.

Immediate Assistance

We can provide immediate financial assistance to help a family stay afloat during treatment. We pay essential expenses on a family’s behalf, including mortgage/rent payments, utilities, groceries, transportation costs, treatment-related lodging and travel, childcare or elder care, and other expenses that will provide financial relief for the family.

We are proud to partner with The LiFT Network to deliver our Financial Treatment Program.
