UBCF COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Program Supporting Breast Cancer Patients

October 5, 2020

HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (PRWEB) OCTOBER 06, 2020

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and marks 7 months from the first major closings across the United States due to the Coronavirus. In fact, many states are currently seeing spikes in new cases.  All of America, and the world, has been impacted COVID-19 virus, causing fear and financial stress for many, especially for cancer patients. In response to the pandemic, United Breast Cancer Foundation launched their COVID-19 Emergency Assistance Program this Spring and the program remains open.  UBCF invites breast cancer patients to apply for emergency aid to make sheltering at home more comfortable and a little easier.
