Mission: Breast cancer solutions is a non-profit organization that provides direct assistance, community referrals, and compassionate support to individuals going through treatment for breast cancer.
Programs: Amount listed is program expenses for providing community based resource navigation, referrals and support to breast cancer patients. Navigation and referrals are provided to all who contact our organization to enable breast cancer patients to access care and complete their treatment. Services include coordination with partner agencies to provide cross referrals, assistance with accessing applications for government programs, providing all clients with a detailed resource guide of available programs and services, and mental health support, assessment and referrals for therapy and intervention as needed. Our organization partners extensively with other programs and services to assist callers in accessing additional services to enable access to treatment.
amount listed is program expenses for direct financial assistance provided for living expenses and out-of-pocket medical expenses for breast cancer patients in financial distress. Financial assistance categories most often include housing (rent/mortgage), transportation, food, utilities, medications, medical copayments, medical share of cost, and insurance premiums. Following intake and needs assessment for financial assistance, clients submit an application, intake survey and verification of expenses as needed, such as housing lease agreement, utility bill, paycheck stubs for health insurance premiums, pharmacy receipts and account statements from physician offices for co-payment amounts. Payments are made directly to financial assistance clients creditors, payees, and landlords. Clients receiving financial assistance are typically below 200% of the federal poverty level, are uninsured or underinsured, and are in financial distress due to reduced income and/or increased expenses as a direct result of breast cancer treatment.
