In 2018, more than 266,120 women in the U.S. will receive a diagnosis for breast cancer. The treatment is expensive, strenuous, and will last an average of six months. The treatment will typically cost between $50,000 and $100,000, and even so-called “good insurance” won’t cover all of that. Many women are unable to work during their treatment, and will face a loss of income as the medical bills continue to mount. These women will have two simultaneous battles on their hands: medical and financial. We believe that women should be able to focus on healing and not have to worry about losing the roof over their heads, the car that they use to get to treatment, or how they will feed their families.
The Catherine H. Tuck Foundation is a nonprofit organization that offers breast cancer financial assistance through our "Catherine Fund" grant program.
