A cancer diagnosis can pose a tremendous financial burden on an individual and their family. The Emergency Financial Assistance program provides assistance to adults in active treatment for their cancer for their basic, non-medical living expenses such as food, gas, utilities and rent or mortgage payments. Our goal is to help ease the financial burden and worry, so that you can reserve more energy for self care and healing.

- Must be over 18 years of age.
- Must have a cancer diagnosis.
- Must be in active treatment for cancer (chemotherapy, radiation, bone marrow transplant, hospice, palliative care or surgery with a recovery time in excess of four weeks). Hormone therapy is not considered active treatment.
- Must be living in or treated in the seven-county metro area of Minnesota – Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott, and Washington.
