A cancer diagnosis is a life-changing event.
For Ms. Baker, 2021 has been a year filled with many difficult challenges. Within the year she has lost family members, had a tragic house fire, and undergone adjuvant chemotherapy and radiation following surgery. Due to her ongoing need for treatment, Ms. Baker has not been able to work. Moreover, she has had to use her own savings to regain furniture that was lost to the fire. Through the foundation we have been able to help alleviate some of Ms. Baker’s financial burden by covering the cost of her utilities bill. We were also able to assist Ms. Baker with the cost of her JTA transportation so that she could come in for treatment without the worry of paying for each ride.
The Ackerman Cancer Foundation was established to improve the quality of life for those touched by cancer. Our mission is to provide a wide variety of patient support services, including financial assistance, educational programs, and counseling to patients in need during their cancer treatment.
Your support helps cancer patients during one of the most difficult times of their lives. Your gift brings hope and strength to patients, who are achieving things they never thought possible.
