Helping Hands Fund for Women with Breast Cancer

Item # 40772

As new drugs show promise in preventing breast cancer, women who should be taking these medications may be reluctant if costs are too high. This is also true for pharmaceuticals prescribed as part of breast cancer treatment regimens. The "Helping Hands Fund" at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center helps patients whose medication costs, for prevention or treatment, exceed their ability to pay. Your gift in these tough times will make a difference.

The U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center provides its patients diagnostic, treatment and support services in a collaborative environment, focused on excellence in patient care. Drawing on the strengths of the University of Michigan faculty, the Cancer Center has assembled a team of specialists who are leaders in their fields to unravel the threat of cancer and to provide care and comfort to those it afflicts.


Report from the Field

July 2011 from Katie McGrath, University of Michigan

With unemployment into double digit figures, the state of Michigan and the entire upper Midwest region continue to struggle financially. Cancer patients and their families often face unexpected expenses or may have no health insurance programs or limited coverage. The U-M Cancer Center's financial assistance program has helped more than 300 patients receive aid for expenses such as transportation, prosthetics and equipment, and medications in 2010.
