CancerCare® Provides Financial Assistance for People with Pancreatic Cancer
National Grant Generously Provided by Celgene
NEW YORK, NY (October 27, 2014) – CancerCare, the leading national nonprofit organization providing free, professional support services and financial assistance to anyone affected by cancer, announces a new national grant available for people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
The “CancerCare Get You There” program will assist both men and women with transportation costs associated with their cancer treatment. Applicants must be diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and meet additional eligibility guidelines. To apply or learn more, call 800-813-HOPE (4673).
“A cancer diagnosis is a very difficult time for many families financially and costs such as transportation can oftentimes prevent our clients from receiving proper treatment,” said CancerCare Director of Patient Assistance Programs Jane Levy. “Thanks to Celgene, these individual grants will help to alleviate some of the financial stress for people coping with pancreatic cancer.”
CancerCare offers additional services for anyone affected by pancreatic cancer, including support groups, counseling, podcasts and educational materials. To learn more visit, www.cancercare.org/diagnosis/pancreatic_cancer.
