Since NHBCC designed and launched the Support Services Fund (SSF) in 2006, we have assisted over 500 New Hampshire breast cancer patients navigate difficult and trying financial crises during their breast cancer treatment. The SSF is a fund of last resort for women, men and families who need help paying for the basic necessities of daily living, so they can focus on their breast cancer treatment and getting well. A month’s rent, heating oil or propane, utilities, car repair, child-care, a medical co-pay or COBRA — expenses many of us take for granted — are a few of the expenses that the SSF covers. This program is made possible only by the support and generosity of individuals, businesses and corporations who want to help. As an all-volunteer organization, NHBCC puts every SSF dollar to use immediately to assist patients and make a meaningful difference in their lives. If you, or someone you know, is battling breast cancer and might need financial assistance from the NHBCC Sup-port Services Fund, visit our web site ( to download an application form. Complete the one page application and take it to your social worker to sign. NHBCC is here to help.

NHBCC receives requests for more financial expenses than we are currently capable of fulfilling. With your support, NHBCC can provide additional critical financial aid to breast cancer patients in need. To help, visit

pIC2smFrom the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium, a poster presentation titled The City of Hope Breast Cancer Survivorship Study:  A Longitudinal Look at Symptoms.  Women with breast cancer are enrolled at diagnosis then followed over time to assess symptoms and side effects of treatment, what Dr. Susan Love terms “collateral damage.”  It is time to pay attention to the difficulties and needs of survivors.
