Financial Assistance for Unmet Needs of Breast Cancer Patients

To provide financial assistance for breast health/breast cancer related services or items to underserved women throughout Maine via the Coalition’s Support Service Fund. MBCC established this fund in 2000 after long-term collaboration with cancer organizations and many women helped MBCC recognize the need for a responsive form of assistance to women who have traditionally ‘fallen through the cracks.’ Funds cover a variety of needs including insurance deductibles, new breast prosthesis, treatment for lymphedema, cost of chemotherapy, etc.
