Since 2009, The Cancer Foundation (TCF) has seen a 40% increase in patient applications every year and has outgrown their current database. TCF is in desperate need of a cloud-based database to handle the growing number of requests each year from cancer patients in our community.
“I was so stressed before The Cancer Foundation helped and so afraid of losing my insurance. Thank you so much to The Cancer Foundation for helping.”
–Betty Watson, multiple myeloma patient
TCF also expects moving their data to a cloud-based database will result in more efficient processes for patients and their staff, leading to operating with greater transparency and the ability to partner with additional referring professionals, ultimately serving more cancer patients.
Note: The total project cost is estimated to be just over $20,000, but the Cancer Foundation is able to contribute $5,000 toward the project implementation lowering the funding needed to $15,000.
By choosing this adoption, you are helping a small nonprofit make a difference in the lives of cancer patients, who truly are fighting for their lives.
“If not for you I would have had to pick up more shifts from work which would mean my mother would have missed treatment. Because of you, she was at every appointment.”
–Shirley Fortson, daughter of multiple myeloma patient
About The Cancer Foundation
The Cancer Foundation (TCF) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to help alleviate the financial burden of cancer for eligible patients. Since 2005, TCF has never denied financial assistance to an eligible cancer patient and has given away over one million dollars to more than 2,080 patients in need across 18 counties in northeastern Georgia, including: Banks, Barrow, Clarke, Elbert, Franklin, Greene, Habersham, Hart, Jackson, Madison, Morgan, Oconee, Oglethorpe, Putnam, Stephens, Taliaferro, Walton, and Wilkes.
TCF’s Financial Assistance Program helps reduce cancer patients’ stress by relieving them of the immediate financial crisis which often accompanies their diagnoses, including emergency financial assistance for basic living expenses such as rent/mortgage, utilities, food, transportation, insurance premiums and co-payments, medications, and durable medical equipment.
TCF’s Financial Assistance Program is the sole program of the Foundation and fills a gap in existing services as many national organizations do not have direct service programs that help patients financially.
