Cancer Financial Assistance Coalition

Page Reviewed / Updated - Feb. 2014

Overview

The Cancer Financial Assistance Coalition (CFAC) is a group of 14 organizations that collaboratively fund and maintain a database of financial and other resources specifically for individuals diagnosed with cancer. The database is a free service and allows individuals to search for assistance by type of cancer, regionally or by the specific type of assistance they require be that prescription assistance, help purchasing durable medical equipment or living expenses.  Their database is thorough, easy-to-use and fast.

 Not all the resources in the CFAC database are specifically for the elderly.  Local resources may exist for aging which are not Cancer specific.


In addition to the database, the CFAC website offers essential, easy to read, materials helpful for anyone recently diagnosed with the disease. For the most part, these materials are focused around the costs of treatment, managing the financial components and finding assistance, instead of on diagnosis and treatment.
