Our mission is to alleviate the financial burden of cancer.
New Day Foundation for Families is dedicated to creating a world where no family experiences the financial and emotional burden of cancer alone.
New Day serves cancer patients and their families. Their needs and survival are the priority. No family should fight cancer alone or make unthinkable choices between medical treatment and providing basic necessities. New Day works with hospitals across the state of Michigan to help families reach the other side of cancer by overcoming financial toxicity, a harmful side effect that creates significant barriers to treatment and healing.
