Help for Low-Income New Yorkers Facing a Cancer Diagnosis
CancerCare recently received a $700,000 grant from The New York Community Trust to provide financial assistance to low-income New Yorkers affected by cancer. To apply, patients or health care providers should call 800-813-HOPE (4673) to speak with one of our oncology social workers.
In order to provide the full-spectrum support to those who are coping with a cancer diagnosis, CancerCare’s national office in New York City also offers individual counseling, support groups and community programs for people with cancer, their caregivers and their loved ones.
“CancerCare is grateful for the continued support of The New York Community Trust, which enables our organization to better meet the needs of New Yorkers affected by cancer,” said CancerCare CEO, Patricia J. Goldsmith. “These funds provide a significant source of support for local families who are coping with the enormous financial and emotional challenges that accompany a cancer diagnosis.”
The New York Community Trust, one of the country’s largest community foundations, supports charities in the New York metropolitan area. Since 2000, the New York Community Trust has donated over $11 million in support of CancerCare’s mission.
