Get financial assistance for Hawai`i individuals and families fighting cancer from the UVSC Financial Assistance Program

Maui-based nonprofit provides financial assistance to wildfire survivors living with cancer

(Updated December 18, 2023)

📣If you are a cancer survivor AND have been directly impacted by the Maui Wildfires, you may be eligible for financial assistance to help with your cancer-related expenses and/or basic needs.⁠



Maui-based nonprofit organization, UVSC (Us Versus Cancer), is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to provide hope by raising funds for individuals and families fighting cancer, throughout Hawaiʻi by providing financial assistance for those struggling with their cancer-related expenses, as well as supporting cutting-edge research for a cure. ⁠

UVSC’s Financial Assistance Program helps cancer patients with limited incomes and demonstrated financial need to cover their cancer-related expenses so they can more comprehensively manage their health in both the short and long-term. UVSC’s Financial Assistance Program is designed to relieve some of the financial stress associated with experiencing cancer treatment or having a family member in cancer treatment.⁠

By helping families to reduce financial toxicity and stress related to their cancer expenses, UVSC promotes better treatment outcomes and improved quality for life for cancer survivors and their families during treatment and recovery.⁠

In response to the August fires on Maui, UVSC announced additional efforts to help cancer patients that are dealing with trauma and loss caused by the devastation of the fires and financial challenges from their cancer diagnosis.⁠

UVSC is presently accepting applications from cancer patients that are not wildfire survivors, as well.⁠

📧 Contact us at team@uvsc.org or DM for more info and to request an application.⁠

Funding in part from the Maui Strong Fund of the @hawaiicommunityfoundation ⁠
