Description

Sense of Security provides sustained financial assistance to breast cancer patients in treatment for fundamental needs such as housing, utilities, groceries, transportation, or insurance premiums. Our grants are a maximum of $500 a month for up to six months; $3,000 per family when funds and treatment plans allow.

These basic needs have been met by making payments directly to the vendors chosen by our grantee - for example, landlords - in order to reduce their stress during treatment.

We are proud that so much of our funding goes to ensure that breast cancer patients can stay in their homes and have enough good food to nourish them during their debilitating treatment.

Since 2000, Sense of Security has granted nearly $2 million to 1,475 Coloradans being treated for breast cancer. All donations are granted to patients living in Colorado.
