Our focus is on providing emergency living expenses

Our Mission is to help Ohio breast cancer patients with the day-to-day challenges of living while being treated for breast cancer.

Our monies help nonprofits in your community provide emergency living expenses and other services to their clients.

100% of funds stay in Ohio.


The Breast Cancer Fund of Ohio is an organization worthy of your support:

  • Your support provides critical services to women and men in need, including transportation to treatment, co-pays for prescriptions and doctor visits, and emergency assistance to pay for housing, utilities and food.
  • We are a lean organization focused on our mission of helping women and men affected by breast cancer. In 2014, only 9% of our operating budget was spent on administration. 73% of our funds went directly to grants to nonprofits in your community to provide emergency assistance to breast cancer patients. 1% was devoted to helping patients and their families find local resources. The remaining 17% was focused on education and community outreach.
