Susan G. Komen Program Continues Financial Assistance for Breast Cancer Treatment

On Common Ground

Susan G. Komen®Greater Atlanta plans to continue to help area residents dealing with breast cancer diagnosis.

The Komen Atlanta Treatment Assistance Program (ATAP) will provide financial assistance for local patients dealing with the crippling costs associated with breast cancer treatment, program officials announced.

“The ATAP program is a vitally important resource for our neighbors undergoing breast cancer treatments and supports our Bold Goal to reduce breast cancer deaths by 50 percent by 2026,” said Cati Diamond Stone, CEO, Komen Atlanta. “Thanks to the generosity of our partners, Georgia CORE and the Billi Marcus Foundation, the program will provide support to overcome financial barriers that often prevent breast cancer patients from accessing the care they need.”

ATAP covers limited costs associated with breast cancer treatment such as oral pain medication, anti-nausea medication, oral chemotherapy/hormone therapy, child care/elder care, home care, transportation, lymphedema care and supplies and durable medical equipment.

To be eligible, patients must have incomes at or below 250% of the federal poverty line ($31,225 for an individual) and have an active breast cancer diagnosis.

For more information, call the Susan G. Komen Breast Care Helpline Monday-Friday 9 a.m.-10 p.m. ET at 1-877 GO KOMEN.
