Do you or someone you know need emergency financial assistance? The cost of medical treatment is among the many concerns you may have if your child, a friend, or family member is diagnosed with cancer. Because bills and debt can add up quickly, people may want to seek financial help soon after being diagnosed with cancer.

Some of the people who can help or provide referrals to services that can help include oncology social workers, case managers, and your doctor or oncology nurse. Although coping with daily financial responsibilities can sometimes seem overwhelming, it is important not to let bills pile up and go unpaid.

The good news, is that we are here to help. The Brooke Mulford Foundation considers these requests at our monthly meetings. Please note the following criteria:

  • Applications with missing information will not be considered.

  • No decision is based upon race, creed, religion or national origin.
  • The amounts allotted are at the discretion of the Board of Directors.
  • All decisions are final.
