Needs Beyond Medicine has a mission to decrease the burden of cancer on those undergoing treatment by providing financial support for non-medical expenses. Needs Beyond Medicine focuses on providing educational outreach regarding the importance of early cancer detection and prevention.
Needs Beyond Medicine’s Relief Program creates financial assistance grants for cancer patients to use for necessary nonmedical living expenses such as rent, utilities, groceries, transportation, and other essential costs. The Relief Program brings much-needed assistance to adults facing the fight of their lives.
Educational Outreach Program
Needs Beyond Medicine helps raise cancer awareness to the public by supporting and promoting community outreach programs through partnerships with other health-focused organizations. Our goal is to help raise awareness and to educate the public regarding symptoms of some of the top diagnosed cancers. All of Needs Beyond Medicine’s educational seminars are free to attend, offer essential information about early detection, and provide attendees with additional resources for prevention.
