Free cancer treatment and other help are here for you.

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, there is hope. We offer programs that can be lifesaving — from treatment to education. We’re here to provide the help and information you need.

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer and don’t have insurance, we can provide treatment for you. Your treatment could be free for up to 24 months. The program is available to Delaware residents who:

  • Were residents of Delaware when diagnosed with cancer.
  • Were diagnosed with cancer on or after July 1, 2004.
  • Have no comprehensive health insurance.
  • Do not receive benefits through the Medicaid breast and cervical cancer treatment programs.
  • Meet income guidelines (up to 650 percent of the Federal Poverty Level).

Specially trained professionals can give you help of all kinds to fight cancer — from guiding you through all the stages of testing to lending emotional support to offering practical help such as finding ways to get household chores accomplished while you’re in treatment. Services are free to all Delaware residents.
