A diagnosis of cancer can change your life forever. It affects the entire body—mentally, physically and spiritually. At the Cancer Care Centers Foundation (CCCF), we aim to address all aspects of your care in order to heal all of you. But cancer does not only affect you, it affects your family, your caregivers and all those around you. CCCF’s goal is to help each patient and those impacted by their diagnosis. One of the first areas CCCF addresses is that of financial stress. Financial stress is a big obstacle at a time when one’s energy should be focused on healing and coping. The Foundation seeks to ease this burden by assisting the under insured patient with transportation, rent, and utilities. In addition to financial assistance, CCCF offers cancer survivors and caregivers several cancer support groups which the Foundation sponsors.
Another goal the CCCF strives to achieve is that of educating the public and private sectors about cancer. CCCF provides and participates in educational programs for both the general public and all manner of civic organizations and private groups—with the purpose of increasing awareness about cancer prevention, detection, cancer treatment, and other related aspects of health care trends and consumer opportunities.
Fostering and assisting in the coordination of cancer patients and family care provided by other non-profit and government agencies in order to encourage the optimal delivery of efficient, affordable care to all persons, regardless of their ability to pay, is another way in which the CCCF helps. Our professionals will help you coordinate various insurance, Medicare, Medicaid and supplementary financial assistance so that your main priority can be to focus on getting well and staying healthy! This includes informing you of available transportation assistance and programs that will make your recovery process easier.
Through medical research projects and programs, the CCCF encourages the advancement of care and treatment procedures for cancer patients and their families. After all, looking after our patients and their families is our number one priority and the sole purpose for our existence.
