Our Partnerships: Cancer Financial Assistance Programs
American Life Fund partners with trusted non-profit cancer organizations that help patients find cancer financial assistance programs, caregiver support and treatment education.
Founded in 1999, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) is dedicated to fighting the world’s toughest cancers and providing cancer financial assistance programs to patients and caregivers.
Their urgent mission is to save lives and attack pancreatic cancer on all fronts: research, clinical initiatives, patient services and advocacy.
PanCAN provides FREE clinical trial information to access potentially better treatment options using their Clinical Trial Finder or by contacting Patient Central for cancer financial assistance programs. Patients can also email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (877-573-9971).
Patients are able to speak with a Survivor and Caregiver Network volunteer for support and helpful information from someone who has also experienced pancreatic cancer.
Founded in 1944, Cancer Care is a leading national organization providing free, professional support services and information to help people manage the emotional, practical and financial challenges of cancer. This organization helps late-stage cancer patients find cancer financial assistance programs in their local area.
Cancer Care’ Financial Assistance Program offers limited cancer financial assistance programs for cancer-related costs such as transportation, home care and child care, oncology social workers can help find additional resources at no cost.
Cancer Care also provides co-payment assistance through the Cancer Care Co-Payment Assistance Foundation (check website for current funding). They also offer free wig and prosthesis clinics in the New York, NY office, and free wigs by appointment in the Norwalk, CT, Ridgewood, NJ and Long Island, NY offices.
