Metro Atlanta Breast Cancer Angel Fund (MABCAF)
The MABCAF provides financial grants to assist lower income individuals undergoing treatment for breast cancer with expenses including, but not limited to, insurance co-pays, prescriptions, transportation to and from treatment, child/dependent relative care and basic living necessities such as utilities, rent and groceries.The program is facilitated by hospital social workers who identify breast cancer patients who are undergoing treatment and experiencing financial hardship. The social workers conduct needs assessment interviews and submit requests for assistance.
Hope for the Holidays
At the Thanksgiving and Christmas/Hanukkah holidays, we work with our volunteers and community partners to assure that lower income individuals undergoing treatment for breast cancer and their families can celebrate without worry. We provide financial and social support to these patients and their families through a festive holiday party that includes dinner, games and crafts. They also receive grocery store gift cards and their children get gift cards for various department, toy and clothing stores.
Companies and individuals interested in hosting at Angel Tree at their workplace or becoming a sponsor for our Hope for the Holidays program should contact us.
