The following organizations provide SUPPORTIVE services to women battling breast cancer, such as emergency living expenses, transportation to and from treatments, new job skills, and more. If you live in a county not covered by these organizations, see our Application for Individual Assistance.

APPLICATION FOR INDIVIDUAL ASSISTANCE

Grant Application

Although the Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio tries to cover all of Ohio, we do realize that some counties are not serviced by participating organizations. To bridge this gap, we will provide grants to nonprofit organizations for up to $1,000 to assist persons living in uncovered areas.

If you are currently being treated for breast cancer, please contact the organization above that serves your county. If you live in a county not covered by any of the organizations above, please review the eligibility requirements below. If you are eligible, please contact your health care provider's social work department to submit the Application for Individual Assistance.

Eligibility:

a. The treatment center must be a nonprofit organization that serves breast cancer patients and has a mechanism to distribute emergency funds to them.

b. The patient must have a cancer diagnosis and be in active treatment (including, but not limited to, chemotherapy, radiation, surgery, or hospice/palliative care. Hormone therapy is not considered active treatment.)

b. The patient must live in Ohio.

c. The treatment center must exhaust all other resources for emergency assistance.

 

Grant monies can be used for the following purposes:

a. transportation to and from treatments

b. temporary support of living expenses such as housing, utilities, and food

c. child care during diagnostic and treatment procedures

d. job training
