  • Once all necessary information has been received, the Client Assistance Committee will review your request. All applicants will be notified of the committee decision via phone or mail immediately following a decision.


Typically, the entire process takes an estimated 2 – 3 weeks, however, all necessary information must be submitted before any request will be considered.

At BCFCF, our goal is to ease the financial worries of families facing breast cancer. Our financial assistance program helps pay for household expenses while a breast cancer patient is in active treatment. BCFCF may be able to help you cover the cost of rent or mortgage payments, utility payments, car payments, car repairs, home or auto insurance, gas, or other necessary expenses. Please fill out this application to start the process. The client assistance committee meets once a month to review and approve cases. All inquiries, applications and client information remain confidential.
