Breast Cancer Emergency Assistance Available
Adena Health System is proud to be a 2021 Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio (BFOhio) grant recipient. Through the Adena Cancer Center, BCFOhio emergency funding offers help for Ohio residents who are currently fighting breast cancer, and meet program criteria.
Each year, grant funds go to several Ohio organizations to manage BCFOhio-supported emergency financial assistance. These monies assure breast cancer patients have access to emergency financial help to remove home and social barriers to receiving treatment.
As part of the grant award, Adena Cancer Center is required to assess the level of need among breast cancer patients in our communities, and the state of Ohio. Thank you in advance for participating in the brief survey below.
