Carolina Cancer Foundation was established to ensure that cancer patients are able to have access to the most advanced cancer care in their community. Within budgetary capabilities, Carolina Cancer Foundation offers support to uninsured and underinsured cancer patients in Horry and Georgetown Counties to help with the expenses of chemotherapy, chemotherapy administration and supportive cancer care medications. Additionally, we provide referrals to local social service counseling and other agencies.
Our goals are simple.
We will help by:
- Coordinating patient advocacy.
- Supporting treatment coverage efforts.
- Providing cancer education.
- Assisting underinsured and uninsured patients.
Education is key.
The Carolina Cancer Foundation is approved by the South Carolina Nurses Association to provide Continuing Education in Nursing. By these means, the Foundation helps to coordinate community education efforts regarding cancer prevention, early detection and treatment.
The Foundation works at both the state and national levels to improve quality of life and ensure the highest quality of care on behalf of cancer patients throughout Horry and Georgetown Counties. The Foundation acts as a liaison to our state and national governments to communicate the healthcare needs of patients undergoing cancer treatment and care. Because we know firsthand the tremendous burden a diagnosis of cancer can have on both the patient and their loved ones, our members make frequent trips to advise our legislative leaders on oncology issues in an effort to make a real difference for cancer patients everywhere.
