Every family’s needs are unique. Our job is to alleviate their greatest financial and emotional burdens to reduce the effects of financial toxicity and improve treatment outcomes and survivorship. Qualified applicants have either a parent or child currently undergoing cancer treatment in the state of Michigan, and must have dependent children under the age of 18 living in the home.
New Day offers bill payment services (excluding medical bills, credit cards and vacations) to families who have suffered significant income loss as a result of a cancer diagnosis.
The Single Parent Program specifically addresses the unique burdens of single parent families facing cancer. Single parents often forego treatment, risking their lives, due to lack of support and funding for childcare and/or transportation. This should never be an option.
New Day has a social worker and professional counselor on staff who offers a limited number of complimentary counseling sessions to our families on an ongoing basis. Learn more.
Each family receives a customized care package filled with comfort items and helpful resources including Financial Handbooks, blankets, inspirational and educational books, and other partner resources.
