The mission of Breast Wishes is to “Give US Choices” for Breast Cancer Treatment and Prevention. The Uninsured Treatment Fund offers clients a financial grant for their uninsured choices to work with their active cancer or recent diagnosis.
Clients complete the application for the breast cancer treatment they would like to utilize that is not covered by insurance and why. Included in the proposal is their diagnosis and treatment history to date, itemized details of their chosen treatment and costs as well as applicants financial need history. Applicants are required to document and share their healing methods with Breast Wishes audience via website, newsletters, social media and events. Methods for this may be blogging with hyperlinks that includes scientific data, photos and edited video no longer than 90 seconds per clip, art and music. Grants must be used within six months of issue and only used for treatment, not daily expenses such as rent, utilities, etc…
The Board of Directors will choose recipients based on the applicants financials, type of treatment they desire, how much it will cost and ideas for sharing their experience with Breast Wishes audience.
