Community Cancer Care Fund

Emergency financial assistance for those actively receiving care for cancer

It is difficult enough to cope with a diagnosis of cancer without the added burden of financial stress that can occur as a result.

The Community Cancer Care Fund offers emergency financial assistance to help with expenses during care and treatment.

The Cancer Care Fund is a program of the Buffalo Hospital Foundation and is funded by proceeds from the Street Party of Hope, gifts from donors, and occasional grants. 


The Community Cancer Care Fund has been established for people who are actively receiving care for cancer. Active treatment includes chemotherapy, radiation, bone marrow transplant, surgery, lymphedema, hospice or palliative care.

The fund serves patients of all ages receiving care at Buffalo Hospital or living in the Wright County area. 

What does the Community Cancer Care Fund cover?

Basic living expenses such as mortgage or rent, car payments, heat, electricity or other utilities, out of pocket medical expenses, food, and gas can be covered by the fund. The Community Cancer Care Fund cannot be used to make credit card payments or to prepay expenses.
