Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund
We appreciate your interest in the Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund grant program. Due to the high volume of requests received, we are temporarily closing our application process. Please check this page regularly for updates.
We encourage you to visit our COVID-19 resource page to learn about other financial assistance opportunities.
Below are details about our grant and eligibility requirements:
Breast cancer treatment can be very expensive, especially for people with limited incomes. In addition to medical costs, there are many other expenses that can increase financial stress. With the onset of COVID-19, the financial devastation experienced by people with breast cancer has increased significantly.
Grants can be used for living expenses such as mortgage, rent, utilities, and transportation. Grants will range from $500 - $1,000 depending on the applicant’s circumstances and as funding allows. Please note that grants cannot be used to cover medical expenses.
Grant funds are paid directly to vendors. No funds are given directly to the applicant. We will make every effort to process applications within 3 weeks of submission and will notify applicants of the status of their application at that time. Grants will be available as funds allow.
To ensure we reach as many individuals as possible, priority will be given to people who have not previously received a grant from Living Beyond Breast Cancer. In order to apply for a grant, you must:
- Be in active treatment or living with metastatic breast cancer. Living Beyond Breast Cancer defines active treatment as chemotherapy, surgery, radiation, and targeted therapies. We do not consider long-term hormonal therapies such as tamoxifen or aromatase inhibitors to be active treatment.
You will be asked to provide your healthcare provider’s contact information so LBBC can verify your breast cancer diagnosis.
- Be experiencing financial need due to breast cancer treatment: You may apply for a grant if your income is up to $75,000 for an individual or up to $150,000 for a couple (based on the US Government’s stimulus payment guidelines).
Priority for grant approval will be extended to those individuals demonstrating the highest level of financial need. The size of the household will also be considered. You will be asked to provide a personal statement explaining how breast cancer and COVID-19 have impacted you and your family.
- Live within one of the 50 United States or the District of Columbia.
Please visit our COVID-19 Resource Page to learn more about the impact of COVID-19 on breast cancer and tips for coping.
