Financial Assistance

Financial Support Program

BCAK receives many requests during the year for direct client financial support.

Besides the greater Kingston area, our coverage includes those areas from which patients receive treatment at the Cancer Centre of Southern Ontario at KGH, so it stretches as far as Trenton in the west, Cornwall in the east and points north as far as Sharbot Lake, Perth and Westport.

Facing Challenges in your Financial Life?

Breast Cancer Action Kingston offers financial support to help those living with and/or receiving treatment within the South East LHIN coverage area.  Applicants are expected to canvas other sources of funds available in the community as well as support from BCAK.

BCAK offers Financial Assistance in a Number of Ways

Wig, Prosthesis, Bra and Swimwear Bank.

A donation means a lot to a ‘recipient’. They are in an unfortunate financial position in life compounded by their health problems. The items we have donated for the bank help them to fit into society and everyday life a little better therefore making it easier for them to ‘blend in’. They also give them more self-confidence which helps to fight their health issues.

On behalf of the recipients, we would like to thank the people who generously donated their items. The bank can always use more.

If you are in need of this type of assistance, please contact Bea Faraklas, 613-536-0180.
