Overview

The Partnership Cancer Fund was created to assist area cancer patients undergoing cancer treatment with certain medically related expenses.

Treatment can be costly, especially if you are no longer able to work or do not have health insurance. The cost of medication, durable medical equipment, nutritional supplements, and transportation to and from treatment often places an additional financial strain on families.

Without financial assistance many cancer patients face tremendous financial hardships that can adversely affect their care and recovery. If you know someone who might benefit from the Partnership Cancer Fund, please have the social worker or case manager where they are being treated to contact us.

Please consider becoming a contributor to the Partnership Cancer Fund! To request more information or a pledge card, email john.sparks@sgpfh.org or call John Sparks, Executive Director, Lowndes County Partnership for Health at (229)245-0020 ext 500.
