Family Reach is a national organization dedicated to eradicating the financial barriers that accompany a cancer diagnosis, a widespread issue known as Cancer-Related Financial Toxicity (CRFT). We work with patients and healthcare professionals at more than 400 top-tier hospitals and cancer centers, striving to reach more families before they hit critical financial breaking points. Through our solutions-oriented Financial Treatment Program, nationwide events, strategic partnerships, and generous community support, we disrupt how cancer financially affects families.

Education & Awareness
To lower out-of-pocket healthcare costs, Financial Navigators work alongside patients and their oncology care team to maximize insurance coverage and apply for co-pay and prescription assistance.
Certified Financial Planners™ help manage spending, negotiate reductions in debt and maintain a healthy financial situation as families juggle lost income and increased expenses during cancer treatment.
Families fighting cancer often find themselves unable to make ends meet. Daily living expenses like mortgage, utilities, gas and groceries are covered through financial assistance, so patients and caregivers can remain financially stable during treatment.
