"Giving Cancer Patients Hope For Life"
Cancer can be difficult in so many ways, and sadly one of those ways in financially. Many people in Davidson County are struggling financially, and then when you add a cancer diagnosis on top of that, it can be overwhelming. Cancer Services of Davidson County is here to provide financial support to our patients who have income less than 200% of the Federal Guideline for Poverty. Then they qualify to receive financial assistance from us. We do this in two ways. First, we help pay for any prescription medication related to a patient's cancer or a side effect from it. Secondly, we offer reimbursement at $.30 per mile for the amount of miles traveled to and from treatment and to and from the doctor. Currently, we are able to offer each patient $500 in support. How they use that support, whether it be medicine or mileage, is up to them.
