If that were to be the case, we would encourage you to speak to one of the Regional Cancer Care Associates Financial Counselors, who can offer you guidance for potential alternate funding and patient assistance from national and local resources potentially applicable to your situation.

Patients may obtain applications through the following sources: (I) at any Regional Cancer Care Associates medical clinic, or (II) via the Charity website. Patients may also apply for a grant directly online at the Charity website.

Cancer or a serious hematologic condition can be a long journey. You can help make the journey a little easier, by making a donation or contribution to the effort in a variety of other ways. The Charity accepts financial donations of cash, stocks, bequests, honorariums, and memorial gifts. Your gift is deeply appreciated and the contribution is tax deductible to the extent allowable by law.
