Any cancer patient who lives in Northeast Louisiana or who is receiving cancer treatment in Northeast Louisiana is eligible to complete an application. The CFL does not help the families of deceased patients, only the living patient who is currently receiving treatment.
The CFL provides assistance for cancer related medication, transportation to/from treatment, nutritional supplements, medical supplies and some household bills (examples: mortgage/rent, utility bills, food, insurance, etc.) The CFL is not able to pay for doctor bills or hospital bills as well as bills associated with phone, cable or utility deposits.
For approved expense requests, the CFL staff will issue a CFL check for the approved amount payable to the qualified vendor. Payment assistance of a check is not made to the patient.
Complete a referral form and provide written medical verification of diagnosis of cancer and proof of income. The Patient Services Committee will evaluate the application. Click here to open the Referral Form.
This organization means so much to me. It is such an honor to work with these fine women and to be part of such a group. To be involved with such a worthy, much needed organization makes me feel good. I know that I have made a difference in someone’s life.
The final 50 miles of my journey were spent thanking God for all the blessings of my life... The blessings I delivered were nil compared to those I received that Friday before Christmas.
It has been an honor working with such a wonderful group of ladies (members of the Cancer Foundation League) and each year I pray we raise more money than the year before and help many more people. Remember each day God gives us is a blessing and we should never let a day go by without reaching out and helping someone else.
