Financial Assistance

The NYOH Community Cancer Foundation provides financial assistance and other resources to individuals diagnosed with cancer.  By paying for rent and household bills or providing gift cards to purchase gas and groceries, we help people living with cancer focus on their treatment, instead of worrying about daily household stressors.  The Foundation also supports limited patient education and patient workshops.

    “I have been struggling with cancer, sometimes I have good days and bad days. I would not survive without your help I did not have food at home, I am out of work because the cancer got me out of work and I live by myself. Again, thank you so very much for the gift cards.”
