AVONCares Offers Aid to Underserved Women

NEW YORK—Cancer Care, Inc. has established a new program—The AVONCares Program for Medically Underserved Women—through a generous gift from The Avon Products Foundation. The program will provide financial assistance and relevant education and support to low-income, underinsured and uninsured, underserved women throughout the country in need of diagnostic and/or related services for the treatment of breast, cervical, and ovarian cancers.

The AVONCares Program will allow Cancer Care to provide financial assistance to help women pay for:

  • Diagnostic (postscreening) services that lead to definitive diagnoses for women who have had breast, cervical, and ovarian cancer screenings.

  • Transportation to and from treatment.

  • Childcare for women with families.

  • An escort to accompany older women to and from diagnostic workup and treatment.

Services offered to women through the AVONCares program will be accessible nationwide through Cancer Care’s toll-free line 1-800-813-HOPE (4673), via the Internet (www.cancercare.org), and at Cancer Care offices in the New York metropolitan area, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
