Breast Cancer Emergency Fund
Quick, Compassionate Financial Assistance
Since 2001, Breast Cancer Emergency Fund (BCEF) has been the only Bay Area organization dedicated to providing emergency financial assistance to low-income women and men battling breast cancer. To date, we have delivered over $1.5 million in quick, compassionate care to help reduce financial hardship, improve quality of life and enable people focus on their health and their families.
Security During A Devastating Illness
Many people with breast cancer have inadequate or no health insurance. Most will be unable to work throughout their treatment, adding a huge financial toll to an already difficult struggle. Our fast and early intervention prevents financial deterioration and provides a sense of security during a devastating illness. BCEF helps people in need continue life-extending medical treatments, avoid utility shut-off, prevent eviction and maintain stable housing while they battle breast cancer.
Our Dream: Access To The Best Health Care for All
We envision a healthcare environment in which, one day, everyone will have access to the best medical care available regardless of ability to pay – and within a continuum of care safety net that eradicates fear of financial ruin.
