A pillar of the Hirshberg Foundation’s mission is to provide patient support and referral services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families. Aside from the emotional toll, a cancer diagnosis can create a financial burden as well. Since 1998, the Foundation has funded a grant through Cancer Care, Inc. to provide financial support for pancreatic cancer patients.
Cancer can have a devastating impact on a person’s financial well-being. Costs associated with transportation to and from treatment, pain medication, child care, home care, and more can be overwhelming for patients and loved ones. Our longstanding partnership with Cancer Care allows patients to apply for a one-time grant to help cover the costs related to cancer treatment.
