For Cancer Patients

Cancer can be costly. Let The APG Foundation reduce your financial burden – so you can get the treatments you need and keep your focus on healing.

  • Medications
  • Compression sleeves and stockings
  • Prosthetics, wigs, mastectomy bras
  • Meals
  • Groceries
  • Massage, Reiki, acupuncture and other complementary services
  • Gas cards
