Founded by community volunteers in 1965, the Cancer Fund (formerly the Benton County Cancer Association) is here to help our neighbors diagnosed with cancer. No family is ever ready for a diagnosis; cancer is a physical, emotional, and financial burden. The Benton County Cancer Fund exists to lessen that burden on local families. When a cancer diagnosis stretches your family’s finances, please let us help you.
NOW MORE ASSISTANCE
Once solely for transportation, the Benton County Cancer Fund can now help with other basic needs for your family: utility bills, home health care, groceries, travel to treatments, and more! Upon approval, patients may receive up to $1,000 (per calendar year) to help with expenses, not covered by insurance.
The Cancer Fund has existed for over 50 years, through generous support from our community. Everyone has witnessed or experienced the burden of cancer. Your tax-deductible gift can help us reach more local patients and expand our services. Lost a loved one to cancer? Honor their battle by directing memorial gifts to the Benton County Cancer Fund.
All patient-related inquiries should be directed to Vicki Sims at firstname.lastname@example.org or 765-491-3088.
Led by local volunteers, the Benton County Cancer Fund has tried to make the approval process as simple as possible. We WANT to help you and your family! If approved, the Benton County Cancer Fund will distribute funds directly to the third party vendor (i.e. utility company) or given to the family in the form of pre-paid card.
