The financial burden of cancer is
a life or death problem.

For some cancer patients, an empty tank of gas could be the reason they don't make it to treatment today.

Our mission

Removing the financial barriers standing between cancer patients and their treatment.

Family Reach is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to removing the financial barriers standing between cancer patients and their treatment — such as loss of income, increased out-of-pocket expenses, and socioeconomic factors. When faced with these financial barriers, families have to make impossible decisions like choosing between paying for treatment or basic essentials like housing, food, and transportation. No family should have to choose between their health and their home — and we won’t stop until that’s the reality.

Our services

Financial Treatment Program Graphic

Family Reach’s free wrap-around financial services include financial education, resource navigation, financial coaching, and emergency relief grants. These services make up the Financial Treatment Program, which is available to people and families facing a pediatric, young adult, or adult cancer diagnosis.

By helping families with the non-medical costs of cancer, the Financial Treatment Program relieves financial stress and creates space to focus on healing.
