Helping Hands Fund

As new drugs show promise in breast cancer treatment and prevention, women who should be taking these medications may be reluctant if costs are too high. The Helping Hands Fund at the U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center helps patients whose medication costs exceed their ability to pay.

Coverage for Genetic Testing

A woman who has inherited a harmful mutation in BRCA1 or BRCA2 is about five times more likely to develop breast cancer than a woman who does not have such a mutation. Insurance companies should not have the right to decide who gets funded for testing.

Help a Woman During Breast Cancer Treatment

Some insurance companies don't cover the drugs that are prescribed by doctors to save breast cancer patients' lives. Low-income and underinsured women are then forced to choose between surviving cancer and financial survival. When insurance companies deny the costs of prescription medications, The Patient Access Network (PAN) Foundation steps in to fill the gap.

Donations through this Gift That Gives More™ provide one day or one week of breast cancer medication, depending on how much you choose to donate. Thank you.
