Treatment Assistance Fund
Susan G. Komen Central and South Jersey is proud to provide assistance to those struggling with the financial burden of breast cancer treatment through Susan G. Komen’s Treatment Assistance Program. This program bridges the gap for underserved individuals who are actively undergoing breast cancer treatment. With this program, we aim to help those who are facing financial challenges by providing limited financial assistance, education and support services to low-income, underinsured or uninsured breast cancer patients throughout Central and South Jersey.

To be eligible, patients must have incomes at or below 250% of the federal poverty line and an active breast cancer diagnosis.
