Komen Financial Assistance Program

Are you struggling with the financial burden of a breast cancer diagnosis? We’re here to help.

Financial hardships shouldn’t keep those with breast cancer from getting the care they need. While medical treatment and care are typically the primary costs associated with a breast cancer diagnosis, there are other expenses of daily living that can prevent patients from getting the care they need, when they need it. The Komen Financial Assistance Program is here to help.
