Financial Assistance Program for Cancer Treatment

The Borland Groover Foundation was created to help improve the lives of people in the Jacksonville community. In 2008, we began hosting March to Get Screened, a 5K race that began with the mission to end colon cancer and has grown to become so much more.

Thanks to generous support from the community, we created the Financial Assistance Program to help cover various medical treatment expenses for people recently diagnosed with colon cancer.


If you qualify, you are eligible to receive up to $5,000 per person, per year to cover gastrointestinal medical services.

Medical charges are paid directly to your provider; so unpaid invoices must be submitted with the program application.


To be eligible for financial help, you must be:

• Newly diagnosed with colon cancer

• In financial need (must be under 350% of the federal poverty level) Please view guidelines.


Disclaimer: The program is a discretionary Program offered by the Foundation. The acceptance or rejection of any application to participate in the Program shall be in the sole discretion of the Foundation regardless of qualification. If funding of the Program is suspended due to lack of resources, applications will be placed on hold until further notice. Applications to participate in the Program will never be denied because of race, color, religion sex age, national origin or marital status.
