Jen’s Friends Cancer Foundation provides supplemental financial assistance. That means that we supplement existing financial resources to pay for non-medical expenses that are not covered by other programs (such as Medicare, fuel assistance, etc.).
Types of support given to a client are customized to that client’s situation and financial needs. Some of the expenses Jen’s Friends support:
Rent, mortgage, and taxes
Travel expenses to and from chemotherapy and radiation treatments
Prescriptions not covered by other sources
Other special expenses to support quality of life
