Any cancer patient who lives in Northeast Louisiana or who is receiving cancer treatment in Northeast Louisiana is eligible to complete an application. The CFL does not help the families of deceased patients, only the living patient who is currently receiving treatment.
The CFL provides assistance for cancer related medication, transportation to/from treatment, nutritional supplements, medical supplies and some household bills (examples: mortgage/rent, utility bills, food, insurance, etc.) The CFL is not able to pay for doctor bills or hospital bills as well as bills associated with phone, cable or utility deposits.
For approved expense requests, the CFL staff will issue a CFL check for the approved amount payable to the qualified vendor. Payment assistance of a check is not made to the patient.
