  • $150 provides a monthly support group for patients and caregivers.
  • $200 covers the hard costs for a nutrition class for 30 participants.
  • $250 provides Lifeline Assistance for 20 callers search for information and emotional support to deal with cancer.
  • $500 covers the whole cost of a one-time Patient Financial Assistance Fund award for a low-income cancer patient.
  • $750 provides a weekly writing class for patients and caregivers.
  • $1000 provides a two-month series of yoga classes for 15 people in treatment for cancer – helping them keep up their energy and flexibility.
  • $2500 helps close the gap in funding shortfalls due to the impact of Covid-19 on our regular funders.
