Space Coast Cancer Foundation was established in May 2006 with a mission to assist cancer patients and their caregivers in our community with the financial and emotional demands that are associated with the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.

“We provide patient transportation, direct financial assistance to help pay for pain medication, anti-nausea medication, and other support needs (wigs, scarves, hats) of cancer patients,” said Dr. Richard Levine.

“We collaborate with Walgreen’s Pharmacy for prescriptions that are filled locally. We also assist patients without insurance by contacting pharmaceutical companies for free chemotherapy for those patients that are eligible and qualify.”

In addition to assisting cancer patients and their caregivers, the board of directors supports local oncology education and research. The foundation has available ten $200 educational scholarships for the oncology nurses at each area hospital. This enables oncology nurses employed at the hospitals to receive financial reimbursement for the expense of going to courses to maintain their oncology and chemotherapy certification.
