Needs Beyond Medicine is dedicated to helping cancer patients pay for non-medical expenses while undergoing medical treatment. Our mission is to decrease the burden of cancer by increasing awareness, education, and relief to cancer patients. Needs Beyond Medicine is focused in an effort to offer assistance toward enhancing the quality of life for those diagnosed with cancer through educational and financial support.
Needs Beyond Medicine offers educational programs to raise awareness of various types of cancers. The emphasis of our educational programs is to help the general population understand the warnings and signs to early detection of cancer. All of Needs Beyond Medicine’s educational seminars are free to the public and offer basic information on early detection.
Needs Beyond Medicine’s Relief Program creates financial assistance grants for cancer patients. These grants can be used to supplement living expenses not classified as a medical expense. Examples of such living expenses include rent, utilities, groceries, transportation costs, and more. These grants help to provide much needed relief for adults and children facing the greatest fight and period of hardship in their lives.
canSURVIVE is an annual Needs Beyond Medicine gallery stroll that features portraits of Utah-area cancer survivors. These portraits include individuals who have conquered the disease, and those who are currently undergoing treatment. canSURVIVE also serves as Needs Beyond Medicine’s annual fundraiser.
