About Family Reach
Family Reach is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to removing the financial barriers standing between a cancer patient and their treatment. Loss of income, out-of-pocket expenses, and socioeconomic factors create disparities in the financial burdens families face. Family Reach delivers financial education, financial planning, resource navigation, and emergency relief funds to patients and caregivers facing a cancer diagnosis so no family has to choose between their health and their home. Family Reach believes that financial treatment should start as soon as a cancer treatment begins.
Patients can apply to the Financial Treatment Program by visiting Financial Treatment Program for Cancer Patients | Family Reach or by working with a Healthcare Provider at one of our many hospital partner sites which includes but is not limited to the following locations: Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore, and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in San Francisco.
