Flathead Cancer Aid Services

Use of Funds: The funds will be used to assist cancer patients in meeting those financial obligations that involve their daily living expenses.

Mission Statement: Our mission is to provide financial assistance to local cancer patients who are experiencing problems meeting their non- medical expenses during their cancer treatment.

Project Detail:

We have provided assistance from simple requests such as paying for wood to heat homes to covering the cost of hearing aids.  In between are those requests to pay for insurance premiums and car insurance while out of work so patients can continue to see the doctor, mortgage payments, utilities, and other household bills.  The program would continue to assist these qualified patients to  focus on their treatment and recovery not on their financial burdens.  Medical bills and illnesses are involved in greater than 62% of personal bankruptcies in the US.  Over 75 % of these bankrupt families had health insurance.
