Cancer Care Centers of Brevard Foundation

 

After evaluating numerous non-profit organizations, we are pleased to announce that the Cancer Care Centers of Brevard Foundation (CCCBF) has decided to join the Florida Cancer Specialists Foundation (FCS Foundation). Our shared mission of helping patients in need cover their non-medical living expenses while undergoing cancer treatment makes CCCBF’s merger into the FCS Foundation a natural fit.

In addition to continuing to support cancer patients in Brevard County, the merger of CCCBF into the FCS Foundation brings additional benefits to patients, including:

  • Faster processing of grant applications and donations through the FCS Foundation’s online portal
  • Personal support from our dedicated, full-time staff to assist patients directly with any of their questions and concerns
  • Enhanced resources from a statewide organization

Additionally, because Florida Cancer Specialists physicians cover all overhead costs and operating expenses of the FCS Foundation, 100 percent of donations go directly to patients. And, to ensure continued support for Brevard County patients, all funds raised in the county will remain in a restricted account reserved for them. Moreover, we are committed to continue fundraising for the FCS Foundation in Brevard, specifically to support the patients that live and receive treatment there.

If you are a patient who is currently receiving assistance from CCCBF, please rest assured that your financial assistance will continue uninterrupted as this transition proceeds. Details of the transition are as follows:

  • All approved payments in queue to current grant recipients through the CCCBF will be completed and paid out by CCCBF through December 12, 2018.
  • Any new grant applications going forward will need to be made through the FCS Foundation, and can be easily submitted online using the following link: http://foundation.flcancer.com/apply/
  • The CCCBF office will officially close on November 30, 2018, so it is critical that all mailed payments be received by the CCCBF by no later than that date.
  • Please call 321.775.9522 for any questions regarding bill payments during the transition period.
