iThink Pink Breaking Down the Barriers Financial Assistance Program
Our program offers child care, education, financial assistance and transportation to uninsured, immigrants regardless of their immigration status and disenfranchised women who are faced with barriers in accessing breast health services.
Breast Care Relief Fund
Our Breast Care Relief Fund provides financial assistance for mammograms and other follow-up procedures for women who are at risk for breast cancer. We navigate women through the entire work-up process of an abnormal mammogram screening and follow-up care. For women, whose screening results indicate a breast cancer diagnosis our program will continue to provide ongoing breast health services at no cost if funding is available. Financial assistance is paid directly to third party providers to cover breast care financial hardship.

Please be advised that applications are processed on a first-come-first serve basis and there is no guarantee that funding will always be available.
Don't have anyone available to help get you to and from treatment? We will pay for private transportation for up to ten days per month for your cancer treatment.
