The Breast Cancer Voucher Program assists area women who are patients of the Breast Cancer & Women’s Health Institute (BCWHI) who have breast cancer and who are uninsured or underinsured by providing financial support.

Women battling breast cancer and their families are profoundly affected by this disease and deal with many stressors. Among them are financial stressors.

Costs associated with breast cancer care and recovery are numerous and significant. There are costs for direct medical care, transportation costs associated with cancer treatments, expenses for medical supplies and other items such as wigs and prosthetic bras.  Women who are underinsured or who do not have health insurance often find themselves with mounting expenses intensifying an already stressful experience.  Additionally, the process of cancer treatment and recovery is typically lengthy keeping working women away from their jobs which can significantly reduce a family’s income.
