Financial assistance


The Borland Groover Foundation aims to ensure all people have equitable access to colon cancer treatment services. If you have recently been diagnosed and are concerned that the cost of medical care is a barrier to your recovery, we want to help.
Thanks to the generous support of our community and the annual March To Get Screened event, the Borland Groover Foundation is able to provide eligible applicants up to $5,000 in financial assistance for treatment-related expenses


We are dedicated to reducing the financial burden of cancer treatment. Our aid process is straightforward:

  • You provide a confirmed diagnosis of colon, rectal, and/or anal cancer
  • You demonstrate financial need according to these guidelines
  • You submit an invoice along with Explanation of Benefits (EOB) to us
  • We make a payment on your behalf



To be eligible for financial help, you must be:

  • Newly diagnosed with colon cancer
  • In financial need (must be under 300% of the federal poverty level)
