Why We Exist
Thousands of families face the agonizing diagnosis of breast, ovarian and other gynecological cancers every year with a family member or dear friend. When the treatment begins, life changes forever-for everyone involved.
For the duration of treatment the patient and their families still need to pay for their basic living expenses including, food, childcare, transportation, housing and insurance premiums. To those who can continue working during treatment and/or have other adequate sources of income, these expenses can be covered, but to many patients and their families such costs are an unbearable burden. This added stress can interfere in the process of healing. When the anxiety of how patients will survive financially is addressed, they can settle down and focus on their care and wellness.
This emerging need is the reason for Sense of Security California, to provide non-medical financial assistance for breast, ovarian and other gynecological cancer patients during treatment.
