DOWNLOAD THE FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FORM


Breast cancer can destabilize the budget of those affected, whether due to increased out-of-pocket expenses (e.g. transportation to treatment and follow-up visits, accommodation, domestic help etc.) or also, for many, due to work disruption that may lead to a decreased income.

To support people affected by breast cancer, those eligible for the financial assistance program of the Quebec Breast Cancer Foundation may receive up to:

  • $ 1000 / application, for persons diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer (stage 4);
