Service Programs

UCAN® provides critical assistance free of charge to area cancer patients that are undergoing cancer treatments such as infusion chemotherapy or radiation.  Assistance is available to qualifying patients who are able to show financial need and meet UCAN® guidelines.

Assistance may include, but is not limited to:

Nutritional Supplements:  Eligible patients may receive nutritional supplements with an oncologist’s order.

Transportation Assistance:  Eligible patients may schedule transportation to and from cancer treatment appointments or be referred to other transportation resources.

Fuel Expenses:  Eligible patients may receive gas cards to help defray fuel expenses.

Medical Supplies:  Eligible patients may receive assistance in the form of medical supplies as needed.

Daily Living Expenses:  Eligible patients may receive assistance to pay utility bills, mortgage payments, groceries, or household items.  UCAN® does not assist with internet, cable, or satellite expenses.

 Because the needs of a patient often exceed the resources available, a monthly limit applies to each qualifying patient.  Life-time assistance limits may apply.
