Apply For Assistance

Most people realize that patients who lack health insurance face tremendous financial problems. However, even those with health insurance can quickly exhaust their financial resources, leading to the possibility of not being able to pursue their cancer therapy as planned.

The Citrus Aid Cancer Foundation goes beyond other existing community, regional, and national resources to help those in need. We begin by meeting and talking with each patient to gain an understanding of their needs, and then tailor plans to assist them accordingly if necessary.

The types of services we provide, as funds allow, include:

  • Referral to existing programs locally, regionally, and nationally for assistance.
  • Assistance regarding transportation to and from cancer treatments.
  • Assistance with obtaining medication necessary for quality of life during cancer treatment.
  • Assistance with screening studies for the under served.
  • Emotional support for cancer patients and their loved ones via our Social Workers and our support groups.
  • Financial support of local patient support groups.
