Treatment Assistance Program

Susan G. Komen® Central Tennessee is proud to offer assistance to those struggling with the financial burden of breast cancer treatment through the Susan G. Komen® Central Tennessee Treatment Assistance Program. This program bridges the gap for underserved individuals who are actively undergoing breast cancer treatment. With this program, we aim to help those who are facing financial challenges by providing limited financial assistance, education and support services to low-income, underinsured or uninsured breast cancer patients throughout the Central Tennessee Service Area of Greater Nashville, Upper Cumberland, Chattanooga and North Georgia Regions. 

In fiscal year ’19, our affiliate was able to provide $13,500 to 45 local individuals through the Treatment Assistance Program.
