The Brenda Mehling Cancer Fund (BMCF) supports patients ages
18-40 as they undergo cancer treatment. It provides services to
meet daily needs that are not covered by insurance. Typical grants
cover $500 worth of medical co-payments, rent and mortgage, transportation,
car insurance, repairs, and groceries.
Since Brenda founded it in 2001, the Fund has provided $280,888
in services for 406 young adults across 30 different states. She
built it for young adults her age to maintain self-respect during
months of treatment and minimize the stress of associated financial
challenges. Even though she is no longer with us, we are working
to fulfill Brenda's vision of a nationwide support organization
that helps young adults fight - and beat - the disease.
