NEW SUPPORT FOR BREAST CANCER PATIENTS AVAILABLE THROUGH FINANCIAL GRANT PROGRAM

The Patient Advocate Foundation is pleased to announce the launch of a new program within PAF’s patient service programs. The Komen Treatment Assistance Program Financial Aid Fund now provides breast cancer patients access to financial support in the form of grants to offset treatment related expenses.  Financially and medically qualified patients may use the one-time grant of $300 to cover expenses for lymphedema care and supplies, durable medical equipment, transportation costs associated with getting to and from treatment, prosthesis and wigs, or childcare and/or eldercare necessitated by treatment.

To apply, patients should call the Financial Aid Fund division of PAF at(855) 824-7941. Additional details of this program can be found at www.patientadvocate.org/gethelp.
