Our mission is to alleviate the financial burden of cancer.
New Day Foundation for Families is dedicated to creating a world where no family experiences the financial and emotional burden of cancer alone.
New Day serves cancer patients and their families. Their needs and survival are the priority. No family should fight cancer alone or make unthinkable choices between medical treatment and providing basic necessities. New Day works with hospitals across the state of Michigan to help families reach the other side of cancer by overcoming financial toxicity, a harmful side effect that creates significant barriers to treatment and healing.
Cancer Related Financial Toxicity (CRFT) is most often caused by inability to work and loss of income due to a cancer diagnosis, and rising expenses including high deductibles, medical bills, high-cost prescription drugs and transportation. CRFT directly impacts life expectancy and quality of life for cancer patients and their families, regardless of socio-economic status.
New Day provides financial assistance for living expenses and offers free professional counseling services for emotional support. This program model is an effective anchor for our mission. We also provide financial navigation services. New Day uses a cutting-edge technology platform to predict financial burden in the early stages of a diagnosis and provide valuable resources to offset that burden.
