FINANCIAL TREATMENT PROGRAM
Cancer families often find it challenging to make ends meet at the end of the month. Hands for Holly supports cancer families, if applicable, by paying for essential expenses on a family’s behalf and offering access to financial education, navigation, and planning services. Our goal is to help families focus on their child, access care, and get well.
If your child is in treatment at one of the Hands For Holly partner hospitals, (Levine, Hemby, Duke, Prisma, Maynard, St. Jude Clinic in Charlotte), you can contact your hospital social worker about eligibility and the inquiry process for requesting essential expenses be paid by our program. If the person with cancer is treated at an outside hospital and meets our eligibility guidelines, then you can begin the application process by contacting us for an application. We will respond to all inquiries within 24 hours.
Through Hands for Holly's partnership with the LiFt Network and the Financial Planning Association (FPA), we are able to incorporate the early intervention service of financial planning. This service pairs cancer patients and their families with Pro-Bono financial planners to help them manage cash flow and debt during cancer treatment. Families are referred to the program by social workers and utilize a digital hub that matches patients and families with certified financial planning professionals. Please inquire on this service through your social worker or via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
FINANCIAL EDUCATION & NAVIGATION
Through our LiFt Network affiliation, Hands for Holly provides families battling cancer with a Financial Handbook. This tool helps newly diagnosed families understand their financial options and plan proactively. In addition, Hands for Holly's collaboration with Family Reach navigation, links patients to resources that can reduce costs associated with cancer treatment. The program is delivered by a team of in-house navigators who communicate directly with patients, caregivers, and the oncology care team.
Three Step Navigation Process:
1. A financial needs assessment
2. Matching the patient needs to resources
3. Referring patients to resources
Navigation to resources can reduce spending on travel, lodging, housing, utilities, and more.
If you are looking for navigation resources, please review our guidelines & inquire via: email@example.com
