Are you struggling with the financial burden of breast cancer treatment?
We are here to help.
Financial hardships shouldn’t keep patients from getting the treatments they need, that’s why we created the Komen Treatment Assistance Program. We know medical treatments and care can be expensive, but there are additional costs that can prevent an individual from receiving the treatment they need. Eligible applicants may receive a $300 award once per 12-month period to help with treatment related costs.
Financial assistance is available to breast cancer treatment expenses such as:
- Side-effect management medication (e.g. pain, anti-nausea, etc.)
- Child care/elder care
- Oral treatment medication (e.g. chemotherapy, hormone therapy, etc.)
- Transportation to and from treatment
- Durable medical equipment (e.g. oxygen tank, walker, etc.)
- Lymphedema care and supplies
- Food or groceries
- Palliative care
- Home health care
To be eligible for financial assistance applicants must:
- Be in active treatment for breast cancer.
- Reside in the United States, Washington, D.C., or any US Territory.
- Have a household income at or below 250% of the Federal Poverty Line.
- Call Komen’s Breast Care Helpline at 1-877-GO-KOMEN (465-6636). A Komen Helpline specialist can determine if you are eligible and walk you through the application over the phone.
We can be reached from 9 a.m. – 10 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday.
