Upon learning that I have breast cancer, my days seemed to be filled with educating myself about the disease and treatments. And that is as it should be. However, it didn't take me long to realize that life goes on. The everyday responsibilities of buying groceries, paying bills and whatnot continued, made even more difficult by the added financial burdens of getting to radiation appointments, purchasing medications, and mounting medical bills. Receiving assistance in the form of a gift card from NATCAF lifted my spirits and eased my path during a difficult and confusing time. God bless them and their mission!

My experience with NATCAF has been extremely good. They helped me with two $50 Visa gift cards and I was able to purchase special supply dressings that are needed for the wounds that I have on both of my breasts. My insurance covers 30 days but because both my breasts have wounds I have to purchase another 30 days of supplies to have enough until my next refill. The $100 really helped and I look forward to NATCAF being able to help others like me in the future.

Hi! My name is Shirley C. and I have stage 3 breast Cancer and I have two types of Cancer in the right side of my breast. My husband and I are retired and live on a tight budget, it is very hard as we both have health issues. I'm so grateful to have foundations such as National Cancer Assistance Foundation Inc we received a $5o gift card just in time to help with food. The cost of eating healthy is very expensive for us and every dollar counts especially now that I have bills growing from chemotherapy and doctor appointments. It's emotional uplifting to know there is help available.

I'd like to start by saying thank you for the fifty dollar gift card that you sent me. When I received the card I remember thinking that I know exactly what to spend it on. The radiation starts to reek havoc on your body. The soaps and lotions are too strong for your skin. Everything is so sensitive these are the products you have to use. I was able to buy enough to probably last me throughout my radiation period.

My story began 3/25/2021, my name is Michelle Moore. Mother of two grown boys, one blind, one expecting my first grandchild in June. I’ve never fathomed the idea of ME getting breast cancer. I had a breast reduction in 94, no cancer runs in my family so I was good to go…..Until that day. I woke up with a golf ball size lol on my left breast with 4 smaller ones beside it, and was told it had made it to my lymph nodes. Soooo, here I am 50 at the time, just got hired for my dream job, was a week away from celebrating how great my life was…..I have HER2+ ER+PR+, the most aggressive and up until just a year before, there had not been any approved effective treatment. But by Gods grace, even though it was aggressive and would kill me in no time had I not gotten treatment, it was NOW the best to treat with the “JUST “ approved concoction of poison if my body responded and I could handle it. Long story short, I couldn’t take my dream job, I started 6 cycles, 18 treatments weekly preparing for my DMX and 35 radiation treatments. I’ve had surgery, finished radiation Monday, and only have 2 more chemo treatments and then reconstruction surgery. During this time it was so easy to lose hope and to be humbled is an understatement. I lost everything, had to move in with my caregiver for the moment, and look for help anywhere that would listen. The National Cancer Foundation helped me when all I literally my sheer will to live. I haven’t been able to get anything without asking someone for money that I know they don’t have, the $ and gifts they sent me just proved that God has blessed me and so many others for a company willing to help someone they have no idea who I am. Although, I spent most of it on my future Grandson, I am forever grateful for the assistance they provided and will always be an advocate for breast cancer and let others know all about this foundation.
My most sincere thanks and love,
Michele Moore
ALIVE and plan on staying this way for a LONG time!!!

My experience with National Cancer Assistance Foundation Inc was indispensable, welcoming, warming, supportive, not much energy from myself. A simple application, with documentation was all that I had to gather. I am so excited to have been approved for this assistance, As I am exhausted, yet hopeful this non profit provided direct assistance in a little amount of time. This assistance will assist me in paying utilities and have a little extra for a rainy day when I’m not feeling so great. Yesterday, was a bad day but today is a better day thanks to National Cancer Assistance Foundation Inc. Your support is so greatly appreciated at this time for me. Thank you Kindly!

Every person's interaction with an organization is unique. It was at a stressful time in my life I found myself having to lean on others for assistance but at the same time unsure on who I could turn to. Since September 2021 I have received 2 Breast Cancer diagnosis, which both knocked me off my feet. I never thought it would be, but it is. Receiving that news then to find out all of the insurance I signed up for through work were no longer available because my employer chose a new company, something I didn't know about was another hit to me. Now I am sick and don't know how I am going to support my family.
I am so very Grateful for the support that the National Cancer Assistance Foundation has given me. At a time when things are confusing, finances are not certain, and you're not sure who you can turn to for help they are a true Blessing. At such an uncertain time this organization was/is a blessing. Thank you again for being there when I needed this the most, Christina Crosby

I thank this agency very very much, it was very much appreciated.

My name is Anita Rice, and in September of 2013 my life as I knew it changed forever. I was a wife a mother of 3 and an Administrative Asst. at a large hospital facility, when one day a pain in my right breast made me recognize a dimple on my right breast. My worst fears were confirmed. The pathology from the biopsy showed one of the most aggressive types of breast cancers known, it was Triple negative.

One month later I underwent a 10 hour surgery a right breast mastectomy along with reconstruction. After my body healed 12 weeks later I started
and completed, 6 rounds of Successful chemo treatments which put me in remission.

In June of 2018, 4 years and 8 months later a horrible pain in my right leg sent me to the ER to discover that the cancer had returned by way of metastasis to the bones in my right hip and skeleton. I was devastated and afraid. I knew that in order to survive this I had a huge battle ahead of me. Radiation and chemotherapy were my only options. I underwent 36 radiation treatments followed by 190 chemo infusions and still counting.
CT scans every 3 months have shown that the cancer is stable.
I'm currently on a new drug
given every Friday. This drug is specifically for triple negative breast cancer. The prognosis for women with triple negative BC is not good, yet I have survived 9 years!
I would encourage all women to get mammograms on schedule, that is one of my biggest regrets. Inspite
of that I'm still winning this battle, and would like to encourage women to fight and never give up.

Here are a few pictures of me from the beginning of the battle to the current date. And by the way most breast cancer drugs will cause you to lose your hair. And there are a lot of beautiful wigs to remedy that situation!

National Cancer Assistance Foundation provided assistance toward some of my household expenses. The assistance couldn't have come at a more convenient time. Due to being diagnosed with breast cancer I have been unable to work for the past 6 months and was eventually let go from my job of 5 years. I was worried about how I would get these expenses taken care of. Thankfully, I got a referral to the National Cancer Assistance Foundation. They kept an open line of communication with me as far as the application process and were available to answer any additional questions I had. I am very grateful for their contribution.

My name is Amanda and I have Stage 4 Metastatic breast cancer. I was diagnosed in 2018 at the age of 33. Stage 4 breast cancer has no cure. We are considered terminal and we are given a life expectancy of 2-5 years. I am not married but I have an 18 year old son who just graduated high school. In 2016 he lost his father in a bad 18 wheeler accident and now the thought that he may lose me has been devastating. We were living a pretty normal life even though every year we were literally drowning in debt brought on by cancer. It wasn’t until the pandemic hit that I was one of the many who lost their jobs. Seemed like everything came crashing down. Never in a million years did I think I would fall rock bottom on my knees. I lost it all in a blink of an eye. I worked so hard to go to college and get a career in the dental field of 14 years, provide Insurnace for me and my son, have a steady income to just lose it all. Having a terminal illness has been soo hard to deal with mentally, physically, and financially. I can honestly say that I lost hope in applying for assistance because In my 3 years I did reach out for help to one of the biggest non profit organizations and got zero help. As embarrassing as it may sound I have attended soo many food drives just to keep my family above water and feeling the effect of cancer. NCAF has given me that hope back. I was super shocked to receive mail informing me that I qualified for assistance. I cried and was mixed with soo much emotion because it was late November when I sat at my computer searching and searching for assistance. I knew property taxes were coming up and I needed to find ways to move around where our money went. I applied to so many. When I received that letter in the mail it brought back the pain, tears of that day as I sat there applying. God is good. This is such a relief and blessing especially for the upcoming Christmas holidays. This is truly an organization that needs to be recognized and have more donations because they truly give back.

I can't explain the appreciation I have for NCAF, I am a veteran, with Stage 3 Breast and Lymphoid Cancer, I am employed and working as much as I can through this process. I have never asked for help from any organization before, I always thought that there were others that needed it more than me. I became stressed and upset about my situation and trying to pay and maintain a "normal" life and NCAF came to my rescue. They didn't make me feel uncomfortable from day 1, in all communication was professional with the goal of helping me get through this. They didn't ask uncomfortable questions, everything was straight forward. The process was very fast as well. They rescued me when I needed it the most, I truly appreciate everything they did to help me to include catching up my car payments, sending me an amazing gift package with a gift card I used for some other bills. I felt instant relief, which makes going through these stages of treatment Chemotherapy and Radiation, more successful in my opinion, concentration on getting better, remaining focused with energy that was previously stress. Thank you so much for everything, I truly appreciate the professional process and employee's you have at NCAF! Amazing!

Love and Blessings to all. I came across The National Cancer Assistance Foundation while searching for financial assistance due to a recent diagnosis of Breast Cancer. Since I do not have health insurance nor can afford it, I found myself in great need of help. As you know, medical care for cancer is very expensive. Even the smallest expenses add up such as Over the Counter medications for symptoms to prescription drugs. One of my greatest challenges even now is affording the gas to travel back and forth to the Hospital Facilities for treatment and being able to maintain utilities, food, and all the usual expenses.

When I applied for help through The National Cancer Assistance Foundation, they were thorough, professional, and provided help right when I was in need. I truly loved the way they surprised me with a package of very useful items and the financial assistance. I am so very grateful that this was available to me and that they treated me with care and compassion. I am still facing continued chemo-treatments, surgery, and radiation treatments which a daunting challenge but the Nation Cancer Assistance Foundation has helped to get me to this point. I am hopeful that when all this is behind me, that I can be a donor as well to help those that need help. I see the importance of this great endeavor and I pray that others will give from their hearts. They will be truly blessed if they do.

Thank you for allowing me to share this with you all,
Kindest regards,

I am incredibly grateful to the National Cancer Assistance Foundation, Inc. for their efficient, speedy and substantial financial assistance provided. The application process was simple, easy to understand and easy submission. I provided my supplemental documents and cancer diagnosis with my application.

I was approved within a week or so of submission, and shortly after I received my funds as well as masks, hand sanitizers and school supplies for my children. The funds I received helped me with groceries, past due medical expenses and past due utility bills.
I will always be grateful for the NATCAF.

I found this organization through another organization called The Pink Fund. I reached out to them for financial assistance because I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer December 17, 2020. I was already going through a divorce which happened in March 2021 and having to still take care of two children that were 16 and 12. I was working for an airline full-time and had just graduated aesthetic school to open up my own Skin care business. All of that came to a halt the day I was diagnosed. I had to immediately stop working and turn to organizations to help while I was going to active cancer treatment. I went through a mastectomy and three ports, and another emergency surgery all in a matter of three months. I reached out to your organization for help and within a matter of about 10 days, there was a check at my apartment complex to cover my rent. I was also told that they were actually giving away $5000 this year to qualified applicants. That was my saving grace. I have pretty much gone through every organization I could to get assistance and it was running out because I have pretty much gotten assistance from just about everywhere. This grant came right on time and took care of me and my children for three months of our rent. It also helped me over until I was able to at least go back to work at a part-time job that allowed me to bring some money into the household. I really appreciate you guys. It’s hard enough getting news like this and having your entire world thrown into a tailspin. We should be able to focus on getting better but sometimes that is not the case because we have to focus on taking care of our families. Everyone is not in a financial position to just sit at home while they are going through treatment, Even though they need to be and I was one of those people. You guys don’t know how much of a blessing you are to my family at that time and I hope that you continue to receive funding, donations, and grants so that you may continue to heal people like me that are battling this dreadful disease. Thank you so much for how you’ve helped my family!

I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in April of 2021. I had a partial mastectomy in June of 2021 followed by 4 weeks of radiation treatment. Fortunately I did not need chemo. During this time my husband was having tingling and pain in his arms and legs, and was unable to go to work due to the pain medication he was prescribed. He was a truck drive for Schneider International. Medicare finally approved an MRI in August. At 7:00 p.m. the evening he had the MRI the radiologist called and told us to go to Medical City Hospital of Ft. Worth immediately. He told us his spinal cord was compressed due to critical spinal stenosis of the first three vertebrae. He had immediate surgery the next day. They went in through the front of his neck. Exactly one week later his legs went numb. He had to have another emergency surgery this time they made an incision from the base of the back of his neck down to his shoulders! He has been on unpaid medical leave since the end of April. I earn $1,000 a month as a teacher's aide. If it hadn't been for your organization sending us a very generous gift card, along with a couple other charities who paid our house payment and utilities we would've been homeless. I can't thank you enough for the financial assistance you gave us. He still has a surgery on the 19th of October to reroute a blockage in his legs due to a DVT and peripheral artery disease. He has an appointment with Social Security in November, and we are praying that he will either get emergency social security benefits or social security disability. It is doubtful (with the titanium plates and screws in his neck) that he will be able to go back to truck driving. We are still depending on food banks, and friends who have contributed to make our bills, and our taxes on our home are due in October. Again thank you for what you have done no words can express our gratitude. I have my post surgery mammogram this Friday the 8th. Please pray that it is clean and that the cancer has not returned.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in February 2020. I had a lumpectomy on April 7, 2020, and I started Radiaton treatment in June.

Shortly after being diagnosed, I was given a list of organizations that helped cancer patients with financial, and lodging assistance.

One Organization in particular was National Cancer Association Foundation.

After contacting NCAF, all of the staff there, went above and beyond, in assisting me either by contacting or connecting me with someone who could help me, and the entire staff were very kind, compassionate, caring, Involved, and professional.

The application process was very simple and fast.

Needless to say, not only did I receive a generous monetary gift, I also received a box of goodies.

When the box of goodies arrived, I was like a kid in a candy store., every item in the box was greatly appreciated, and my heart was full!

I travel to UAB Birmingham Al for my Oncology treatments, and it gets (is) pretty expensive.

Therefore, the monetary gift that I received was greatly needed, and it helped me facilitate traveling to and from Birmingham Al, all the more better!

Once I’m able, I will financially support NCAF, just as they have supported me in my time of need, and uncertainty.

Furthermore, I will continue to support NACF in any way that I can, so that they will be able, and continue to support others along their Cancer journey.


With deepest gratitude,

They were exceptionally kind. I felt like a human being and not a number. I had lost my spouse my job and my daughter stopped speaking to me. I am on disability and could not find a place to live that I could afford.
I was lost and alone their phone calls were like a lifeline And their financial assistance kept a roof over my head while I found something more affordable. Here’s a picture of me with my first wig

I was diagnosed with triple negative metastatic breast cancer in summer 2019. Chemotherapy, surgeries and radiation were exhausted physically, mentally and financial. The National Cancer Assistance Foundation helped me to survive when I am going through the active cancer treatment. With their support I had possibility to concentrate on my healing during the treatment. Thank you very much for timely and much needed support. Ana Bell

National Cancer Assistance program came in to help just when I needed it. Going through a year and a half of the strongest cancer treatments they’ve got for breast cancer had me too unwell to work and I was worried about taking care of basic needs. Their gift made such a difference...and with heart!

Hello Everyone, I am a breast cancer survivor and I would like to share a bit of my experience with NCAF. When I was told that I had breast cancer it felt like I was hit by a wrecking ball and I went numb. I knew I had a rough road ahead of me because at the time of my diagnosis I was out of work due to seasonal employment. I had little money and knew I needed to get out there and do some research for possible assistance in so many areas. Doctor bills, medication and transportation, etc. So I got busy and found many nonprofits that help cancer patients. When I contacted NBAF, I received a quick response and after verification process I sat to wait a response. Several nonprofits I didn’t fit their criteria, it can be such a task to find assistance at such a difficult time.
After coming home from a very stressful appointment, I found a box waiting for me from NCAF, included were several personal items that a breast cancer patient would use-blanket, lotions and potions. A wonderful letter and also a generous Visa Gift Card, which you can use for any of your needs. If you are in need of assistance for your cancer diagnosis I dearly recommend reaching out to NCAF. Thank You NCAF for being there for me during such a difficult time.

I was devastated and running on empty, that was until the NCAF sent me a wonderful surprise! A box filled with goodies; like a warm fleece blanket, cozy socks, specialized skin care creams from SkinFix and 2 Visa gift cards! Their gifts made me smile and get through my last rounds of chemo! I am so glad that organizations like the NCAF exist! - Melissa Miller/ NH

Well, my experience with the NCAF was far more than I could ever expect. When I wrote to them with my situation (stage 4 breast cancer), this foundation assisted me with funds as-well-as other items and information that could/would help me. I don't think I could have found a better funding company. As a matter of fact, I wrote/call other agencies and was turned down for whatever the reason(s). I feel this foundation really cares about persons who are in need of assistance.
Whatever and whomever is behind/in this foundation needs to be commended for all that is done to assist those in need. May GOD continue to BLESS and KEEP you in HIS care.

My name is Beiva Martinez, and I first diagnosed with stage3a breast cancer in August of 2019, when I first found out I didn't know what to do, I froze @ that moment, tears started to come out, and the doctor told me, "Dont Worry" everything is going to be ok, but @ that moment all I can think of was my son, what was going to happen if anything happens to me. When I left the Doctors office all I did was pray. But @ the sametime I wasn't so worry cause I know I had faith in god. And that faith help me coped with the fact the cancer it wasn't going to stop me from living a normal life with my son. When I started my treatments I didn't know what to spect, I didn't think much about if it was going to hurt me or what kind of side effects I was going to have, I knew that I was to loose my hair right away, the forst treatment was chemo, my first one was a little painful, cause I felt pain in my lower back, but they gave me benadryl for the pain, it relaxed me, and put me to sleep, but the rest wasn't so bad, except the side effects after, and loosing my hair, but that wasn't that important of loosing it. I had 4 chemo all together. When I finished all my chemotherapy, I started radiation, @ first it wasn't bad, cause I didn't feel anything, after a few radiation I started to feel a burning sensation on my skin, and itching, also it started peeling under my skin, that was really painful, but when I was done I received a certificate of my finishing my treatments without giving up. But with all this it was worth @ the end and so far I feel great. And I owed all to god and my strength of faith. Thank you. Beiva Martinez

I am a 29 yr old single mother of two small children and have a very limited income and because of my terminal disease am unable to work which is very hindering to myself and family, NCAF has been so gracious and so very helpful with my financial burdens I don’t know how I would have made it some months without their help! Anyone else having financial struggles due to limited or loss of income bc of cancer I highly recommend contacting them they are so helpful and so kind and willing to go the distance to help. Thanks to them I don’t have the worry and anxiety of not being able to pay my bills or provide for my children. Thank you all for everything your have done

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer on 5/1/20. I was in need of financial assistance so I applied for assistance with NCAF shortly after I reviewed a gift card as well as a care package with masks, hand sanitizer and other nice and important items! It came at just the right time and I loved it!

National Cancer Assistance Foundation Inc came just at the right time when we really needed help esp during Covid-19 pandemic. All jobs stopped for 5 months and only 1 daughter got called back to work only with lesser hours. At times, I don't know how we survived month after month after month. God really do provide. I'm a single mom of 4, diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, metastasized to spine in late 2016. I got laid off from my job in Dec 2017 and on disability. Recently found out from MRI 2 new tumors wrapped around nerves that extends from the spinal cord. I will be doing a much stronger advanced radiation treatment called Cyberknife Radiation. It has been very stressful it makes it difficult to even focus on my health. That is why I'm so grateful for foundations like NCAF for the assistance given to us. Nothing is too small when you are in need. Every help received is a huge help in easing our burdens. So thank you NCAF and I pray that God will continually bless you so you can share those blessings to others.
