Help provide critical financial assistance to cancer patients so they can focus on their fight against cancer.

Emergency relief for cancer patients


Even with insurance, cancer is costly. People with cancer and their families can be devastated physically, emotionally, mentally — and financially.

That’s why your donation to the Emergency Cancer Relief Fund is so important. Your donation will help cancer patients pay for meaningful comforts such as anti-nausea medication, wigs, restorative care, and other vital needs.

With your financial support, the Emergency Cancer Relief Fund will provide immediate grants to qualified cancer patients so they can better manage their road to recovery…when waiting another day is not an option.

Cancer patients have to pay for so much more than treatment

“When I realized that my insurance was not going to cover the medicine for my treatments that I needed badly to stay alive, I didn't know what I was going to do. HealthWell has given me my life. Without your help, I would not be alive now.”

– Alex, Glendale, AZ, diagnosed with stage IV stomach and liver cancer

“It was $7,900 every single time I had to get a shot...I cannot delay this, it is a matter of life or death. Thanks to HealthWell's intervention, I could finish my treatment.”

– Virginia, HealthWell grant recipient and breast cancer survivor, Denver, CO

“Life is too hard and cancer makes it harder, and you should not have to worry about money as well. Thank you, HealthWell!”

– Kim, Ft. Wayne, IN

Your donation will help to...


Improve patients’ quality of life with financial support for restorative care and wellness activities.


Cover critical out-of-pockets expenses associated with treatment, including lab work or anti-nausea medicine not covered by insurance.


Relieve patients from the financial burden that forces them to choose between life-saving treatment and life’s basic necessities.

The Emergency Cancer Relief Fund was created by the HealthWell Foundation, a nationally recognized independent non-profit organization founded in 2003, that has served as a safety net for more than 200,000 underinsured patients by providing access to life-changing medical treatments they otherwise would not be able to afford.

The Emergency Cancer Relief Fund expands services beyond traditional copayment assistance to better support patients in their journey back to good health.
