The Dr. H.

The fund’s primary objective is to help adult cancer patients and their families identify government programs and services that may be able to provide financial support. If no alternate programs are identified, the fund may provide limited financial assistance to patients who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of a cancer diagnosis. In the last two years, the Patient and Family Support Fund has provided $262,113 in financial assistance to 951 cancer patients and their families in Newfoundland and Labrador.
