When cancer hits below the belt, Sue’s Gift is here to help! We provide financial and emotional support for people facing a gynecologic cancer diagnosis. Our financial assistance program helps pay bills during treatment. Our Woman-to-Woman Peer Support Program trains and empowers survivors to be mentors to newly diagnosed patients with the same cancer type. We also celebrate survivorship and build community.
Studies have shown that people facing a cancer diagnosis have better survival outcomes and a lower risk of developing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder if they have emotional, financial, and social support during their cancer journey. Sue’s Gift provides this level of vital support for people facing gynecologic cancer statewide!

“Sue's Gift has been a blessing for me during the worst time in my life. I received a grant which helped with our finances, and also mentoring from another cancer survivor. Now that I am in remission, I am mentoring other women during their treatment” — Leanne 2-year Ovarian Cancer Survivor
