New Day Foundation for Families is dedicated to having a positive impact on treatment outcomes by alleviating the financial burden of cancer. 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.
