This project provides small amounts of direct financial help to medically
underserved women in the Arkansas Affiliate area who need emergency
assistance for reasons related to breast health. Most of the women will have
been diagnosed with breast cancer and as a direct or indirect result of the
disease will have experiences drastic financial hardships. They will use the
money for such expenses as transportation to treatment or follow-up care,
medicine, overdue utility bills or rent, or small payments on existing medical
bills. The money awards are made only after other resources for help are
exhausted and/or insufficient to meet urgent needs.
