When cancer strikes, a patient’s income often declines and their expenses rise. Medical insurance doesn’t always cover the costs of prescriptions, which can cost thousands of dollars. The Cancer Patient Care Fund provides important financial assistance to cancer patients in our community for cancer-related expenses, like prescriptions, alternative treatments, heating expenses in the winter, travel expenses    and so much more.

Each month, 45-60 patients rely on this fund for financial assistance, and unfortunately, this need is increasing steadily. In 2018, more than $363,895.00 was disbursed to patients.  The 2019 Cancer Patient Care Fund Benefit Concert will help Cape Breton cancer patients when they need it the most.
