Helping Cancer Patients Walk Taller

Who We Are

Assistance in Healthcare, Inc. was established in 1983 by a group of volunteers in Zion, Illinois solely for the purpose of raising funds to support cancer patients and their families.

Southeastern Assistance in Healthcare (SAIH) is a 501(c)(3), non-profit, charitable organization that opened in 2012 and is dedicated to helping cancer patients who are undergoing treatment in the Newnan and greater Atlanta area, and their families, by lessening the financial burden of cancer.

Because medical expenses can make the road to recovery far more difficult, the organization attempts to pave the way by providing assistance to those who have become financially distressed as a result of their courageous fight.

SAIH relies solely on the support of individual donors. Donations and gifts are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Mission

Our mission is to help cancer patients in financial distress while they are in treatment by providing funds for non-medical expenses such as:

  • Mortgage/Rent
  • Food/Groceries
  • Utilities
  • Childcare

and other basic needs, which may be neglected during a patient’s treatment.

What We Do

Southeastern Assistance In Healthcare helps to keep families focused on fighting cancer and not worrying about other stresses cancer can cause by lessening the burden of non-medical needs such as groceries, utilities, housing, transportation, and basic living expenses.

Who We Serve

Southeastern Assistance in Healthcare serves any patient in active cancer treatment at facilities within the Atlanta Metro area, as defined by the Standard Metropolitan Statistical Areas (SMSAs). If you are unsure about whether or not you would qualify, please feel free to use the Contact For Assistance feature on our web site and submit your information for review.
