New Day Foundation for Families is dedicated to having a positive impact on treatment outcomes by alleviating the financial burden of cancer.
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.
Families eligible for financial assistance from New Day must:
• have a pediatric or adult cancer patient in active treatment
• have children age 18 and under living in the home
• be represented by a health care professional/social worker
• demonstrate financial hardship (most often associated with a loss of income due to a cancer diagnosis)
