Dear Pink Partner,
A recipient in our community was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer in September 2017. She receives three chemotherapy injections each month to combat this merciless disease. Her social security benefits were not enough to manage the financial costs of her treatment. She contacted Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Treatment Assistance Program helpline and was approved for a grant to help her meet the financial challenges presented by her diagnosis.
Susan G. Komen® Miami/Ft. Lauderdale is proud to offer assistance to those struggling with the financial burden of breast cancer treatment through the Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale Treatment Assistance Program. This program bridges the gap for underserved individuals who are actively undergoing breast cancer treatment. With this program, we aim to help those who are facing financial challenges by providing limited financial assistance, education and support services to low-income, under-insured or uninsured breast cancer patients throughout the Komen Miami/Ft. Lauderdale in the counties of Broward, Miami, and Monroe service area.
In April we allocated over $38,000 to this program, and we’ve used nearly all of it to help many women in the community receive the treatment they need. We are at a critically low funding level and need your support to continue helping those in financial need. Every $3,000 helps 10 people financially affected by breast cancer.
