Patient Assistance Foundations

Financial concerns should never be a barrier to receiving cancer care. Southern Cancer Center is pleased to provide Financial Counselors at each location to assist patients with any socioeconomic or financial concerns that may arise. We utilize national and local foundations to secure resources for patients. Patients and their families are encouraged to schedule an appointment with a Financial Counselor so that we can tailor a plan to meet your individual needs.
