Can you afford to have breast cancer?
For too many Canadians, the answer is no.
THE TRUTH about breast cancer is the financial burden can be just as devastating as the physical and emotional impact.
That's why we provide financial assistance to patients who are living in poverty while in treatment.
We bridge the gap between the financial reality faced by breast cancer patients and the limited financial assistance available.
The funds we raise, directly support breast cancer patients.
We encourage you to Donate Today – every donation has a significant impact on a very vulnerable community.
"We are all hoping for a world where breast cancer doesn't exist, but right now, we help breast cancer patients with the short-term financial support they need so they can focus on getting well. ~ Donna Sheehan Founder, breast cancer survivor

A new program that provides nutritious prepared meals to breast cancer patients.
The Meal Support Program is a new program developed to provide healthy, nutritious meals to low-income breast cancer patients who are struggling with a critical economic burden because of their breast cancer diagnosis.
The program provides free healthy, nutritious meals during the time they are in treatment.
The Program supports patients who live in the community where they are being treated and for patients who have to travel from out-of-town for treatment.
We provide financial assistance to daughters, wives, sisters, friends and colleagues, working women, young mothers, single mothers, students, single women, the self-employed.
Many patients are living on social assistance and are living without the benefit of extended family or support networks.
The patients we support are in many different stages of breast cancer including Stage IV metastatic breast cancer.
