I Have Cancer – do I qualify for help?

Cancer Resources does not have financial requirements for who we will help. That’s because most people’s financial situation changed the moment they were diagnosed with cancer. In 2017, more than half of the people who ask Cancer Resources for help had employer or privately funded health insurance. Why are so many insured people asking for help? Because most cancer patients cannot work while they are in treatment, but life’s regular living expenses don’t stop when you are diagnosed with cancer. Then add the ever growing out-of pocket costs of insurance deductibles and scores of co-pays from treatment, tests and medications, and solidly middle class families quickly find themselves financially and emotionally overwhelmed.

Who does Cancer Resources help?

  • A cancer patient who lives or works in Elkhart County
  • And who is currently receiving chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery
  • Some cancers do not require follow-up treatment, so United Cancer will help those Elkhart County cancer patients who have been diagnosed with cancer within the last 12 months.
  • Any cancer patient who falls within the above criteria and is not in hospice care

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, please do not hesitate to contact us.
