TBCC Emergency Access Fund

In 2002, TBCC established the Emergency Access Fund to provide financial assistance to individuals in financial need due to inability to work and/or mounting medical expenses incurred while undergoing treatment of breast cancer. This fund provides assistance with mortgage and rent payments, utilities, insurance premiums, and medical necessities related to breast cancer treatment. Recipients must be residents of Tennessee and currently undergoing breast cancer treatments. For more information about qualifications and how to receive assistance from this fund please call 615-377-8777.
